Drums and Different Cannons #3 - For Connie

This short piano prelude is an algorithmic composition, the third in the Drums and Different Cannons series, mapping chaotic equations into pitch and time. The first two were tape works, but this is the first designed for a live performer. In this case the equation is the Torus equation x" = K sin(x). To me the interest lies in the similar but non-identical repeating patterns, and sudden changes that form cannons. The MIDI file can be found here, and also Wav file (20.2Mb), MP3 and OGG.

The score is also available as postscript
