Smile Discrete sequencing system for chords vamp impro

"Hybrid generative music" (directed performance, not automatic).

I have built me a system in the Numerology software where I have implemented all the chords analysis and scales substitutions that I use for mindmap when performing improvised music in a structured context. When playing the thing I direct the generative process by hitting different rubber pads on the Push for improvising a chord vamp basis, thus creating a song structure on the fly. To direct the groove and intensity of the actual musical performance I need to keep changing the looping patterns. All done on the Push 64 pads grid.

Each of the voices in this ensemble is driven by three sequencers of different pattern length. Loop 1 controls when a note is played (Gate Seq), loop 2 controls the pitch (Interval Seq) and loop 3 controls accents (Velocity Seq). So what comes out, for each instrument, is an instant poly rhythm happening between timing, pitch and accent/attack.

The fun thing is how the choice of notes are pure according to random and music theory and not at all restricted by "a musician's old habits" or "what comes convenient with a certain physical instrument".
Best wishes

I would love to see how you are doing the 64 Push button thing.
