Nicholas Cline - tent rain sketch II


"tent rain sketch II" is based on a recording of rain hitting against a tent roof. The sketch could be heard as an illumination of this recording. I used the real-time programming language rtcmix ( and a scale formed from an eleven note subset of the harmonics of a low G (taken from partials 16-32).
