That is really cool. Someone should make software that does this, complete with audio for those who play by ear. Cubase does have a note randomizer, maybe I should try practicing with that.Actually, I've been experimenting with dodecahedronal dice (12 sided)
This allows me to sequence patterns without any type of conditioning, such as my own
or anyone else's, getting in the way. I find it extremely refreshing.
Any device that assist's in composition is beneficial. Anything that produces sound has relevance that can potentially enhance
a composer's inspiration.
I was told that there are no such thing as "wrong notes" in an improvised solo, they are just called "passing tones".Yes, it seems so strange that many guitar players begin improvising with a simple little pentatonic pattern yet sax players often ignore this approach when beginning improvisation and regularly hit the "clunkers" on the strong beats...
What about live music?There are no wrong notes in recorded music because I edit them out!
Yes, but a passing tone has to be placed in the right place so it's a passing tone and not a target note, landing squarely on the downbeat. I guess you could say there are no wrong notes; only notes wrongly placed.I was told that there are no such thing as "wrong notes" in an improvised solo, they are just called "passing tones".
I have one of these. It's badass. Tone generator and sequencer, 16x16 voicings (including a lot of percussion), 16 separate layers per block, 16 blocks, scale control (ionian, dorian, etc.), octave control, pitch control within the selected scale, measure, meter, note length and tempo adjustment, and more. One can get some rad funk goin' on that thang.
