Hi, I'm new here so a little self is in order

I'm Eidon and I'm here because music is very important to me.
I'm a self-taught musician -- I never studied music regrettably. Nevertheless I play some instruments (mainly guitar and bass) and I write my own music sometimes. Oh and I like to sing too.

You may find some of my compositions and covers at open.tube/video-channels/eidon

I'm very happy to be part of this community and hope to have many enlightening conversations with you guys !

A little experiment

I was "playing" with seed 41477999, but I was not satisfied with the overall result

So I focused on the rhythmic section and extracted a number of "chunks" that I liked

Then I assembled them back, with replications, as follows:

s0 s1 s1 s2 s3 s4 s4 s5 s5 s3 s2 s1 s2 s5 s6

I then mixed the resulting track with other Grundgestalt voices: Irish harp (head-truncated) and diato (back-truncated)

And here's the result

I called it "Starless" for obvious reasons

@Eidon @eidon_channel
lovely (again)

i notice what seems like (very interesting) generated rhythmic activity that subtly (and tastefully) plays off of main 3-3-2 pulse

instrument sounds and combinations thereof also a delight

i "hear" the computing behind the sounds, but your programming (serendipity, divine spark, ...) produces audio that engages me outside of intellect (although plenty of intellectual engagement too) in a manner little other computed music does

Taki to Oshima

a little musical idea by Eidon

I wish my musical fragments would be used as soundtrack elements in videos... Wow, a movie with my music, nice thought ^_^

How to read
a person:
start with
wonder, the
quiet kind,
use your eyes
to scan the
text, the rough
parts, the scuff
marks, the love
spots, the smile
half-fallen from
silent lips,
turn the page to
notice the slant
standing, hands
crammed inside
the pockets,
hair ruffled in
the wind, absent
and forgiving -
the reader is
always the
writer of
the book

@Eidon

I often have sentient ducks in my dreams. Lately, they've been playing cribbage.

What is your religion?

Ducks. I believe in ducks. In ducks we trust.

- I must give partial credit to @Eidon, because I used the software he wrote to create a combinatorially generative piece. I cut two slivers from this piece and used them as a backdrop for everything else.

I must say that I do not find this composition as resonating with my inner self

Yasushi Akutagawa - Ballet Suite "The Spider's Thread" (1968)

The Rent Door is a Grundgestalt fragment obtained by... playing the Beggar-my-neighbour game (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beggar-m)

The pack of card is bad-bad-ace-ace-two-two-three-three-four-four-five-five

(bad means a non-winning card, so in this case a card different from ace, two, three, four, and five)

This is "Bottled Souls"

So you tell me that I should not cry
So you tell me that it makes no sense
So you tell me that a man should never do like that
that I better not my feelings out

Now it's my turn
I'll ask you why my feelings should be kept inside
I'll ask you why I should keep bottled my soul
Burst out your feelings or they will just die out
If nothing moves you you will move on no more

@Eidon Hello! Sorry to butt in, but Lystrialle asked if I could help out 👍

Just to check, did you change your locale to Japanese before downloading/installing? UTAU is non-Unicode so it's finicky as heck otherwise. (You'll also need the decimal separator to be a . rather than ,)

@Eidon You should be able to import the MIDI and work directly off of it! The next step is to pick a voice library of your choice (put their files in the voice folder). Most English libraries these days are VCCV configured, so they follow a certain standard

Grundgestalt of seed 00034468, which generates a large sequence of samples. Here I extracted the samples from about 11'20'' to ca. 14'49''. Instruments are piano, bass, and Latin drumset.

This and another excerpt from 00034468 are available at open.tube/videos/watch/70d31ba

The picture there is "Children Picnic", by Kiyohara Hitoshi.

All rights reserved, all wrongs reversed.

I wanted to experiment with synthetic voices; I installed utau and managed to switch the GUI to English. What next? Is there an English tutorial? What is an UTAU script file?

Any help is greatly appreciaated!

I negleted welcomes - please enjoy and take care of our localtimelines and this (hopefully) safe space for musicians and noisers of all kinds:
