Barre Bleed 1

Program Note

"Be not dumb. Practise. Practise your every limb — until you're numb." These thoughts of mine were a starting-point for composing the little piece Barre Bleed 1. In this composition I used a simple framework to include computer-generated voices of different nature, whereas the quasi-static musical metre gets twisted at times — and darker figures lurk —, yet the balance is restored and the exercise continues.
The work Barre Bleed 1 (2022) is written with C++ and a synthesis software built by the author. The timing for the rhythmic events was generated by pendulum simulation. (The word-pair in the title is a key to a 5x5 word square.)
