While at the MoMa today I decided to take a quick survey of the the edges of a random selection of works by artists I respect.
Matisse, Picasso, Miro, Gorky, Rothko, Rauschenberg, Johns, Ryman, Marden
I kept trying to add more layers to this but it didn't work, ended up just keeping it simple.
I've been getting into Propellerhead's Figure more and more lately. I like how simple the design is yet has many more possibilities in variations in sounds than you would first expect. One limitation is the tracks can only be up to 8 bars long. I figured out how to add Figure tracks into Beatmaker 2 and create longer songs last night. Here's the first one I came up with from 5 tracks from Figure in a drum machine on Beatmaker.
