Hi, I'm new here so a little self #introduction 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 https://open.tube/video-channels/eidon_channel
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
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

#noisevember - 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

(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 https://open.tube/videos/watch/70d31bad-ff19-4998-89ef-d9e180f0edd6
