A spiralling little tune

November 23, 2008

One of my most recent achievements in music: spiral.ogg. A fun fact is that the second half essentially is identical to the first but with every measure internally reversed (except for a few melodic corrections); this can be heard quite clearly by playing the waveform backwards.

Like most music I write for myself, it is meant to loop indefinitely (so here it is in raw form: spiral.mid), and any hypnotic effect is deliberate. To appreciate it fully, one has listen to it without interruption for 8 hours or so while engaging in intense programming, studying, or some similar activity.
