Created for Disquiet Junto Project 0296: Clustered Primes
the source material for this week’s project is a list of prime numbers. The list is the result of a contest that novelist Robin Sloan Ran recently.
I noticed that the prime numbers with more than one digit always end with 1-3-7 or 9. I decided to make some kind of pattern out of that;
So I took a 3 bar groove with three different time signatures; 3/4 + 7/4 + 9/4
Downloaded from freesound.org a human voice counting numbers, by mistake my first download was in Japanese, I couldn’t help keeping it. The JP voice is combined with an English human metronome counting down the irregular signature.
Then gradually transformed the mood of the groove (without altering the 3-7-9 beat pattern) to make it a more sequential-repetitive little track. The drums come back in the end but are superfluous for the most of the tracks IMHO.
Electric piano, samples, drums, synth bass, synths.
