This is my 6 hour, Csound catalog composition. All of the sounds in the piece came directly from the Csound catalog. I spent two and a half hours picking sounds and making kontakt instruments and two and a half hours arranging them in Ableton Live. Lastly, I spent one hour mixing and processing the sounds. I wish I had more time!
The piece is called "Composition 12 - John 10 - The Good Shepherd, His Sheep, and the Strangers".
This composition is from a collection of compositions called "Chamber Music" by Kevin James, which is available for donation here: http://www.musicbykevinjames.com/chambermusic.cfm
The composition was composed using a music composition algorithm written by the author in Python. The algorithm is open source and is available here: http://www.musicbykevinjames.com/scorealgorithm1.py
This piece was written entirely with samples of instruments from the CSound catalog. The rendered samples were sequenced in Logic Pro with some digital processing using Logic's functions and plugins, Kontakt, and Battery by Native Instruments.
The gathering of samples, composition, and mixing were done in 6 hours.
This piece was written for the One-Minute Note-List Composition project for Dr. Richard Boulanger's Csound class at Berklee College of Music. There is a heavy use of randomizing opcodes, and automated filters and envelopes.
It has been a couple months since the composition, and for some reason there are clicks and pops when rendering the csd file that were not there before. Also, I accidentally switched the values for kr and ksmps, and the composition does not render properly when the values are correct (kr = 4410, ksmps = 10)
The attached audio is the result of my Six Hour Csound Catalog project. We were tasked to produce a piece using only renderings of instruments found in the Csound Catalog. I used instruments created by Josep M. Comajuncosas, Hans Mikelson, and John-Phillip Gather. All instruments were rendered in QuteCsound, normalized and tapered with Peak Pro 6, made into sample-instruments using Native Instruments' Battery and Kontakt, and finally sequenced and processed using Logic Studio 8.
The piece is called Impulse. I hope you enjoy it.
This piece was written for the 6 Hour Contest in Dr. B's Csound class at Berklee. The piece was put together in six hours using sounds derived from the Csound Catalog. I used Peak to chop up samples, which I put in Reason's samplers. I sequenced it in Logic. I spent the first five and a half hours going back and forth between editing, rendering, and chopping instruments and composing. The last half hour was mixing.
