If you ever take a computer music course where you have to produce a
piece for a final project, but have procrastinated all term long, try
the following. The night before the due date, get in a studio and set
up feedback loops as described above. Record four or eight tracks of
about ten minutes worth of feedback each, varying parameters wildly.
Include a broken cord solo. Mix down to stereo randomly, moving faders
and effect sends at will. Don't spend more than two hours for the
entire production. Turn in the mixdown along with a writup telling of
the four months of constant effort it took to produce the piece using
csound or whatever computer tools you were supposed to use. Let the
buzzwords roll: "The physical model of conical bore, consisting of a
second order section fed back by a nonlinear resonator, was
asymptotically overdriven to produce the main theme." Probable grade:
A-. Extra credit: Write a program to produce a random csound score
file and claim it's the input that creates your piece. Who'll know?
