Microtonal Music is music using more than 12 tones per octave. I compose music using Csound and a preprocessor I wrote in Turbo Pascal. I post small updates as the compositions are being created, and a few final versions once I'm done. I strive towards music that could be played if we had the instruments capable of playing the notes. Think of it as "fake but accurate".

Bumper Music for today
Today's entry is a unison pattern, but the octaves change a lot. It's in a variety of time signatures, switching from 6 beats of one duration to 9 beats of a faster duration every other measure. It makes for the feeling of being stuck in a washing machine. Thanks to the use of Csound as a generating tool, no one misses a beat. Lots of cymbols adds to the chaotic feeling. Some glissandi.
