I started messing around with putting loops into convolution reverb, and playing guitar through it. So far, my favorite technique is creating a loop with kick and tight hi-hat. The kick produces a low-frequency repeat and the hi-hat, a high-frequency repeat. I'll create polyrhythmic patterns that last one or two measures, and trigger the polyrhythmic patterns with guitar notes.
It's kind of like one-shot, polyrhythmic, delayed/reverb phrase generation
I'll be seeing what else I can use as impulses...I've already found out about the wonders of white noise
, but I'm sure there's more to the story than just white noise or loops.
Anyone else out there sufficiently weird to try this kind of thing?
