    Some unreleased experiments that didn't turn out too badly ...
    Solo saxophone improvisation given a pseudo-orchestral accompaniment by layering multiple passes from the excellent g'Litch floballala grainCloudDelay g'Litcher instrument for NI Reaktor (a tape delay simulation with an assortment of presets spanning the mild to the insane).

    Nothing too experimental here, another solo saxophone improvisation with some mild glitchiness towards the end.

    An experiment in algorithmic composition using SuperCollider and recordings of four-note sequences played on piano and other instruments.

    The idea was to create layers of randomised microtonal pitch shifts and panning effects, together with timing shifts of fractions of a beat (also randomised).

    Would be interesting as a performance piece, part scored and part improvised. At the moment there are parts for saxophones, clarinets and drums - a sort of weird cock-eyed bolero. Watch this space ...

    Solo saxophone rendering of a traditional Arabic bashraf.
