A lot of liberties taken here, but it’s based on the opening from Philip Glass’ seminal Glassworks. I like to think of it as a pencil sketch by a student sitting in front of a masterpiece in the Met.
One of many departures from the original that I made was rather than the two over three metre of the original (or is it three over two? it keeps on changing!), I used a Doepfer Clock Divider to arbitrarily assign gates to the five voices using only prime number ratios for the rhythmic divisions, in this case 5, 7, 11, and 13, but I cheated with the 4 underneath! The final moments are given over to the Doepfer 154/155 Sequencer system, creating one-shot aleatoric figures.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
