Bits + Pieces / 2012 / SML Music
Album cover for Bits and Pieces.
About the music
This piece draws concept from Steve Reich's idea of writing something which sounds repetitive but in fact were never repeated throughout the entire composition. The piece were literally pieced together in Ableton Live, but the notes - the bits - were input from the iPad, using various MIDI controller apps I have downloaded from the App Store.
Because of its relatively repetitive sounding nature, I do not intend the audience to be sitting still - you are encouraged to use it as background while multi-tasking. In fact, if you do indeed feel that it is repetitive, I would have accomplished what I set out to do.
This is a pre-mastering rough and is part of the Bits + Pieces album.
