Jellybear

about

Jellybear started with some very specific compositional constraints involving parameters like number of sub-beats per section, groupings of the sub-beats, and repetitions of the sections. I didn't really like it till I exported it to audio and cut it up and recombined it like Frankenstein's monster! Now I pretty much adore it and think I'd like to make a whole album that sounds like this someday.

Incidentally, it uses the same overall tuning system (although not exactly the same pitches) as Shorn Brown, showing, I hope, that 37-EDO is not a one-trick pony!

Tuning: 37-EDO.
Time: mixed/cut-up meter, hidden BPMs 129 and 215.
