BurstNoise from Opus 14 No 1 Robotic Dance
One might imagine that robots, suitably programmed to dance, would do so in a stiff, angular fashion, making quirky noises! With this in mind, some years ago I wrote Robotic Dance (5min 52sec) and recently discovered it on my oldest PC. So �Yer Tiz�, (a sign you might see in your local country pub!), suitably re-vamped for your consumption. Sadly the old PC was consigned to the scrap yard. The composition uses electric guitars, some standard orchestral instruments (piccolo, flute, tenor saxophone, tubular bells, percussion), and some sounds you would find on synthesisers. No doubt with a suitable supply of instruments, it would be playable by school music students, while others �strut their robotic stuff�. Notes in score: Bar 1 � Power up; bar 83 (at 3min 19sec) - Robot chat (Soprano and Bass notes); bar 115 (at 4min 35sec) - Powering down. Burst noise appears occasionally throughout the score, representing the noise spectra of dancing robots. Humans create their own noise spectra when dancing!!! I wonder which would be more bearable??? For the techno buffs, Burst Noise in the Sibelius Mixer is obtained with Bank High = 9 and Bank Low = 1. I play through a 16 year old Roland Sound Canvas Midi Sound Generator SC-55, directing its output to a mini-disk recorder for recording to mini-disk. Then I play the mini-disk music to PC Line-In, recording it via Creative Wave Studio and saving it as mp3 and WMA files. Play the mp3 for reasonable playback. I get good stereo reproduction listening through high quality earphones. Playing the score does not produce the desired result.
