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 . . . 0.25Hz 0.5Hz 1Hz 2Hz 4Hz . . . 1024Hz 2048Hz etc. so in some sense, there's a constant source sending out binary counting numbers: 000000000000 000000000001 000000000010 000000000011 000000000100 etc. 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 sequencer 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. /t http://whatGoes.com ................ extreme NY calendar. http://ax.to/fortune ......... a new fortune every minute. http://clikTrik.com ..................
