Arpeggiated Vexations Phrase

Here’s sample of parts that I have prepared for participation in the Empty Words performance at Northern Spark. I used the Roland MKS-80 and the Bitstream 3X to create this evolving passage based on the original score for the piece Vexations by Erik Satie. In my interpretation I arpeggiated the bass clef notes on a tritone to create a flowing, angular pattern to contrast the traditionally methodical piece. As my interpretation continued I sped up the arpeggiator from eights to twelves to sixteenths and so on.
