FOF Choir – Matrix
Inspired by Stockhausen’s Stimmung (for 6 vocalist), I generated ostinato vowel patterns, using Csound (see FOF Choir instrument) of 4 out of the 5 vowels a, e, i, o, u, (triplets 3) in 8 different rhythms ranging from 4 whole notes to 4 sixteenth notes. I used the Matrix (see also my Sansula Matrix instrument), to cluster these different rhythms in 3 notes.
These rhythms adapt to the tempo of your DAW. Every note has a different ostinato vowel pattern, one of the 120 possible permutations.
You can individually assign the different rhythms to each cluster of 3 notes, or use the randomize button (or red keyswitch) to get a random assignment. With the column select buttons (or yellow keyswitches) you can also assign the complete range to a rhythm.
The instrument is available in Kontakt 6 and in DecentSampler format (split into 9 instruments: random rhythm pattern, 8 rhythm patterns (4 whole notes – 4 sixteenth notes) as 60bpm loops)
Developed in CSound 6.15, Kontakt 6, DecentSampler

Leave a review to let others know what you thought of the instrument!
I tried to do something similar using arpeggiators with the FOF choir instrument but didn’t get the sound that was in my head, and this is exactly what I was looking for. It’s amazing, thank you!
wonderful idea and sound
Great idea here, and the sound is beautiful, very inspiring.
Has a great GUI and the idea is top notch.
You can shuffle between different note length ostinatos and also a randomiser is there. Instant Philip Glass I would say.
Thanks a lot for making this!
