Following the post here last week about the first three in Joaquín Mendoza Sebastián’s ongoing series of etudes for Pure Data, the graphic language/interface, he posted a fourth. And, again, he provided not only the resulting audio of the experiment, but the underlying code, a screen shot of which appears above. The work is a mix of slowly proceeding tones, as if committed on a water-logged yet still functional synthesizer, each seemingly triggering additional echoes, some brief, others lingering.
Sebastián also mentions, in the post, that he’ll soon have a series of videos online that describe the process of his patch development.
