music made of reactions

New Tape Piece from MIT OpenCourseware Class:

This summer I’ve been working through the MIT OpenCoursewar class on Making Music with Computers, mostly in preparation for an electroacoustic baritone horn piece, but also just for fun.  I just finished this piece, in which I recorded 2 minutes of traffic and wind sounds from my backyard, drew a graphic score with squiggles and blobs to represent what it sounded like, and then re-recorded it using snippets of sounds from around the house (the end result didn’t have to sound like the source material at all).  It was a blast!
