What? Not another one??In a previous post I explained what technique I used to write a Canon in 5 parts without much sweating. I've been experimenting a bit more with the technique and here's the result of one of those newer experiments: a 6-part invention.
StructureAs it goes with such pieces it's interesting to highlight the structure of the piece. The piece starts with a theme. The theme is repeated at different starting pitches (basic fugal treatment), and counter-subjects are introduced which are really just the theme in canon to itself. The canon is left to play in 3 voices at a few different starting pitches, and then gradually morphs into a different canon with a different theme. The new canon is also given some basic fugal treatment, and finally both canons sound simultaneously forming a 6-part super-canon with two themes playing simultaneously in 3 different time-delayed versions each. The piece rests in peace after a soothing final chord.
How did you make this?The piece is generated using the techniques explained in my tutorial on writing canons, with some cool twists. I intend to fully explain the creation of this piece including the full score and algorithms in a new tutorial that will appear in a separate post. Stay tuned :)
