Organum

I’ve completed a new piece. It’s the first one in the music player. Previously it was called Chant, but having researched Gregorian chant, I realised that what I was doing with the piece is more like medieval organum singing.

I was improvising with stacking fifths, using a sample of Gregorian chant. The sampled voices are transposed so much that we get that breathy quality, associated with the Fairlight CMI. What you hear in the piece is pretty much all improvised material, later edited lightly to strengthen the structure.
