Based in the minimalist music from the 60s and 70s from Steve Reich, Terry Riley, Philip Glass and others.
Using a Zoom H1n handy recorder I recorded three simple 15secs piano loops in my Monome Norns. Using Cheat Codes 2 you slice each of these 3 loops into 16 slices, so you have a lot of little elements you can reorder and repeat to create new music. You then use the Grid to "play" with these elements live in 3 layers of music.
Euclidean rhythms were used to play all the samples. It's very fun to make rhythmic variations altering the parameters, changing the density and lenght of the loops to create 5, 6, 7 and 10 pattern lenghts in beautiful polymeters.
On top of that I used the Deluge to play some synth sounds and a bass.
For this video I recorded 9 different timelapses from the place I live, San Pedro Alcántara (Spain)
