I like this idea a lot.
It actually leads into a long-term idea I was touting a few years ago
but wasn't able to get together...
Powers of Two.
basically, there's a single central time code source that sends out
so in some sense, there's a constant source sending out binary
I did a bunch o' fiddling on this but my best guess for this
was that we play for 2**13 seconds and have frequencies
up to 2**14 Hz, making 2**27 divisions in total. (2**13 seconds
is somewhat over 2 hours...)
the mixing takes this into account -- any individual player gets to play
for some fraction of the whole time, when their "bits are on", but for
most of the time, many of the players are playing.
We'd hook it up to a digital mixer (like the one right here) and a
so as to enforce the timeslicing!
I'd love to do this.... I have a lot more writing on this... but I'd
love to wait for the second show for this one.
