Would anyone be interested in a blog series that documents my attempts at making a synthwave track from scratch?

By from scratch, I mean no DAW, using homebrew softsynths and systems I created using a mix of C and variety of embedded scripting languages (lua, scheme, etc).

So, not just typical production analysis, but also consideration of the underlying DSP techniques used. And code, too.

Hi. I'm Mike.

I've been making electronic music with computers since the 90's, in some capacity.

My Arcseconds project started in 2010 and that's where I spend most of my art-time. It's mostly moody ambient drone music about distance and time.

I've been on the fediverse as @sixohsix for a long time, but I am creating this account to focus on and share my music work.

Nice to be here!

@neauoire I was re-reading your lifestyle page and it's got me curious

What even or events inspired the DLL project? What made you want to explicitly share the creative process as a project?

I've got no evidence for this, but I believe the concept of avoiding parallel motion in music theory originally came as a result of acoustics.

When you look at sacred choral renaissance music like Palestrina, it's clear that these were written to be performed in giant spaces like churches. The polyphony is very dense and they just fill up the space.

When you sing two melodic lines with parallel motion like parallel fifths in a big space, those two parts are perceptually going to resonate and sound as one voice. And when that happens, the space is not being maximized to it fullest potential in that moment, which means you're disappointing God. And this was not a good time to be disappointing God.

So, less parallel motion meant more perceived sound density, and that kind of overwhelming wall of sound was very much in vogue in early sacred choral music. I think the rule just kind of stuck as things like Tonal Harmony and Counterpoint got more developed and refined over the centuries.

Baudrillard on Consumption 

"The systematic and limitless process of consumption arises from the disappointed demand for totality that underlies the project of life. In their ideality sign-objects are all equivalent and may multiply indefinitely; indeed, they must multiply in order at every moment to make up for a reality that is absent. Consumption is irrepressible, in the last reckoning, because it is founded upon a lack"

I've been maintaining the same pair of MDR-V500 headphones for the past 15 years, the plastic swivel broke on each side but it can be easily fixed with a bit of Jbweld type goop.
