I used “how the night came”'s solo piano track, “the time is out of joint,” and went for a fairly literal translation of the image. To portray the vertical bars in the image, I chopped up the solo piano track into second-long slices and then gave the Follow Actions in Ableton to make it twice as likely each slice would repeat itself vs. go to the next slice.
Then, I took each phrase/section from the repeating slices and reversed the audio sample for that segment.
I ended up with a new track that was about 3 times longer than the source material. So, I repeated the source material 3 more times, transposed the second iteration down a 5th and the sliced audio up a second, which gives a little minuet-ish ABA ternary form.
I also realized the picture by using EQ to use only the higher frequencies of the original track and the lower frequencies of the new tracks.
Thanks to how the night came for making their track available
