i have always been fascinated with elements of chance in music…the OP-1 has some hidden and less used capabilities here!
0) all composition, mixing, mastering, etc to be performed in the OP-1! Minor edits in wave editor (e.g., Audacity) like master Fade-in/out or normalizing are allowed, but no extra effects!
randomize or introduce chance in your choice of chords, notes, rhythms, etc. with dice, I Ching-style coin tosses (great with ENDLESS as it will do 64 step sequences), Tarot, runes…combine the music and the chance elements (make a 6 note scale if using a single die, or all 12 chromatic notes two dice)
Endless and Pattern both have Random modes!
Go “off the grid” and/or experiment with different time signatures and feels!
If you’re “feeling '80s” or nostalgic, let 1985 music be your muse!
Don’t take yourself too damn seriously!
One extra bit of kit allowed - if it’s a module or keyboard that requires an extra piece of gear to interface w/ the OP-1 (e.g., CV-MIDI interface) that’s OK!
Deadline is the “Ides of March” (March 15) at 00:00 GMT!
Not eligible for voting, but i’m finally happy enough with my “order out of chaos” - did everything, even the leads, live on the train. Only used Audacity to normalize and do the final fade out as i ran this all the way to the end of the OP-1 tape (there was an abrupt cutoff.)
