[CSC] Exhibiting Sines of Madness
- Release date
- Short trance tune for the Chinese New Year Sine Contest. I'm quite happy
with how it turned out especially given the limitations of the compo!
started life as an ambient / chill track. The original file where I was
playing around creating instruments had the tempo set at 99 BPM(!),
which would have been the downtempo-iest thing I've ever written. But
then I stumbled onto *that bass* and had to bump it back up just a
little. It was around that point that the title popped into my head too. I guess it's still a bit ambient.
per the compo parameters, every sound you hear in this piece is derived from a
sampled 440 Hz sine wave. Yes, even the square wave is a sine wave. I'll
leave figuring that out as an exercise for you, the listener. (Or you
can cheat and look at my Sunvox file. It's full of really cheap hacks.
I learned something new while making this track: I hate,
*hate* working with pure sinewaves! They're really thin, have no punch, and
cause all sorts of destructive interference & frequency clash 'beats' if you use them wrong! I hope I did a good job with them here.
