week 26 image

Week 26.  It suddenly occurred to me this week that I had not composed a blues yet for the project, however the blues that almost instantly emerged is quite unlike "the blues". I started out using a wonderful "Mini Moog Bass" sound module setting, I liked it so much that I composed and played the whole thing using this one sound. I just love this iconic sound, I find it as expressive as an acoustic instrument, and it really shaped this music for me. I don't think  the original instrument was polyphonic but my proteus simulation is, and made this music much easier.

Even more than week 17, the music sounds obviously constructivist, but also chaotic and lumbering, so I tried to reflect all of that in the image. The image's tonality is an attempt to lighten the mood because the music is so dark. I don't find the music too oppressive, but just in case........
