For my module creation project I decided to make three loops that are designed to be played either separate or in unison. I have plenty of experience creating loops with real instruments, but I decided to experiment with a new medium I’m learning, Tone j.s. Why I am interested in this approach is because my interest is in building music instruments in both the app world and physical instruments as well. I’m currently working on the design of an app that is ultimately a music maker, but depending on the parameters I set, I still have an underlying control of what could be made and what can’t, i.e, note selection, sound selection, and rhythm selection. There is a fine line between producer, consumer, and collaborator using this method. I am essentially curating the instrument within the instrument.
My ultimate goal is to create a system where the general audience is both the producer and consumer, and, in these three loops, which are of course, experimental, I’m wondering whether people will be interested in having a loop bank, a la Garageband, or whether their parameters should have more creative control.
