    Talking 2112 - THE GOLDEN FISH

    And now for something a little different…



    This a demo of what is currently cooking in my sick head. It’s just a start, but I thought I’d share another “skeleton” that I just started. Being that I am such a fan of the number Phi (as in my sig), and am the Trout Superhero , and I use GPO, I decided to combine them all. Phi appears nearly everywhere in nature, and when consciously applied to music in experimental ways, one can capture nature in music (or anything else). I wanted to create a soundtrack for my brain (movies are too limiting). One of the main ideas here is that I started with 6 (carefully) chosen pitches that will repeat throughout (the sequence you hear at the start is repeated back to back). In my imagination, I am on an adventure – swimming, and living the life of a fish – and following the “Golden” fish- (like the “Golden” Ratio a.k.a. Phi). Phi is used everywhere in this short clip. When it is finished, I will send it to my father (the mathematician, musician) to see if I can bake his noodle a little . This is very experimental so watch your ears! I was inspired by Gary, not the least of which because he really FedExed me a Trout !!! No, I’m not kidding!

    Done in Sonar no less…LOL!:

    If I finish it, I’ll keep you “posted”..heheh


    Oh, here’s the dang tune..

    It's very nice! I like it a lot!! As for the name - you had me thinking that you've been playing a little too much Fable lately...

    Hope to hear more from you soon!

    Hey thanks folks!

    One thing that I am using with GPO is the Chameleon 5000 virtual synthesizer. (Re-synthesis – nice piece). Since I posted this, I have been working on it more…loads of fun! Experimental stuff is a blast. I’m trying to find (relatively) new things without going a-tonal (not that I have anything against a-tonal). I'm just enjoying doing stuff that is not allowed!

    Brian,

    Your GpOLDEN FISH "skeleton" is superb. Your use of Phi is intriguing and would like to know more about how you apply it to music. Perhaps a phi recipe in the future?
    Be interesting to hear your father's reaction too. Mathematics aside, I enjoyed swimming along to the groove. Very uplifting and I could listen to this all day. Glad the trout found its way to you. May it provide inspiration to practice your 'scales' and experiment more with fish pi.

    Thanks Brian for posting this. Your music is unique.

    Gary

    Uh, Brian? Not to criticize or anything, but given the, er, nature of things, shouldn't it be The GpOlden Phish?

    Very cool stuff, man! Keep 'em coming!

    Thumbs up Re: 2112 - THE GOLDEN FISH

    Wow, that’s one prolific fishy! You are 2112 are you not?
    Very innerestink how you applied a pie to your music. Must have been a little messy though mit all them thar fish you had to prepare for the pie!
    Huh, what? Oh, Phi! Ooops, sorry I thought he said PIE! That’s a carp anyway!


    And now for something different.

    I really, really like it. I was going to complain about the instruments in the lower register being too wet -- but then I remembered that this is about a fish journey -- so the wet is totally appropriate!
