Very nice Phil.
How did you make it? Is it a single AM patch?
Thank you Ross!
Yes, it is just one self-contained AM patch, though my dual-core 2.4 GHz MacBook with 4GB RAM can't render it in real time. Once rendered, all I did for mastering was a tiny bit of compression and normalization.
I really appreciate how polyrhythms are such a simple method of generating rhythmic complexity with a good blend of repetition and unpredictability. This track has one drum machine with a three-bar phrase in 5/4, another has a three-bar 9/8 pattern, still another in 5+7+9/8 (or something) and another is 7 bars of 5/8. I think one other part is in 11/8, maybe three bars. Oh, and I think the bassline is two bars of 6/4! And all these parts repeat over and over, never (or at least very very rarely) lining up, creating a constantly shifting texture of unpredictable repetition.
I don't know how I could have made this track without the polyrhythmic capabilities of AM. Thanks for that, Ross.
Great to hear AudioMulch poly-rhythmic time signatures in use :) It took a long time to implement.
this is one of those times when the potential of an instrument is used at its best: to offer a meaningful musical result and not a cold and lifeless exploration of its possibilities...
I like it

Made with an older version of AM......
Thanks! Glad you like. I commented on the SC track you linked to. Nice piece. Was this pre-2.x?
@phil: thanks! responded to the comment. Yes it was pre AM2.0...
What is AudioMulch?
What's New in 2.2?
