Here is a thread of music sketches that I made with #TidalCycles, originally to post on Instagram (hence the 1-minute long format) ⤵️

A very simple loop, gradually building up complexity, showcasing a homemade SuperCollider synth of mine.

Another rather basic loop using a synth that I wrote myself. I quickly gave up the idea of typing all the code as I record after that, as it became close to impossible as the complexity of the patterns involved increased.

A soft melodic snippet, in a fashion I would use over and over again in the future.

Distorting a voice sample to make it sound otherworldly, and then feeding them to a haunting melody

A catchy tune made up of several layered arpeggiations, which would later become the track Horizon on my latest EP "Wilderness"

(unsolicited suggestion: constant eighth notes get annoying, maybe put a space (rest) in that voice once in a while (either forming a recognizable meter or not))


@js0000 thanks for your suggestion, I understand what you mean, but I think that in this case, it was necessary to the "blast beat" aesthetic that I was going for (which is actually not contradictory at all with what you're saying, given that black metal is a voluntarily harsh and aggressive style)
