Cascading Convergence is an electronic piece, which uses an additive process. A pattern is created with one note repeating and is then another note is added after the first. A rest or space the same duration is then added. The length of the pattern increases with each added note or rest and with is the length of the measure. This process would be difficult to achieve with a sequencer. So this piece was composed and realized entirely in a program called MAX. MAX is an icon based programming language that can achieve a more advance music making that a sequencer. During one part of the piece, an additive process is set against a completed pattern at a different tempo. This is impossible to accomplish in a sequencer.
Duration: 8.5 Minutes
