thank you @jaseknighter, the workshop was just fantastic. can’t wait for the next one! hopefully its okay to be a TA still when I’m doing a ton of learning and feel like a student
as I mentioned, its really boggling to me how dynamic flora gets with just a few tweaks (especially that envelope randomizer!). I’ve been recorded 20-30 minute sessions without even listening, mostly so I have something to listen to later. with flora I have this certainty that it will just sound good when I listen later because of the genius that it is.
here’s a clip of what I was jamming to during the workshop (flora sequencing piano and strega, doing lots of random modulation on the stega envelope):
For anyone who couldn’t make it to the first session on June 6 (Flora intro), the video is now available for purchase on the Music Hackspace website (see link above). Those who did attend may also access the video.
For the upcoming session on June 20 (Digging deeper), I will be releasing a new version of Flora. I’ll announce it here and on the main Flora thread when it is live, hopefully later today or tomorrow.
I am looking forward to seeing all y’all on Sunday!
Version 0.4.5 of Flora has been released. This is a minor release which contains some feature improvements (detailed in the main Flora thread).
Folks attending the class on Sunday June 20 (or watching the video subsequently) should be sure to update to this release or greater.
The class on Sunday June 20 will cover the following topics:
Outputs (MIDI, crow, Just Friends, W/2)
Parameter (PSET) sequencing
The L-system algorithm + building custom plant forms/sequences
@infinitedigits, thank you for sharing the recording of Domi, Dan, and Cameron playing Flora together! I love it and can’t wait to see more collaborative music being performed over norns.online and by other means!
@Knivtid, I’m so sorry you couldn’t make it for our session this morning. Please don’t hesitate to reach out with questions after reviewing the recording.
The recording from today’s session will be available in about a week’s time if not sooner!
The recording from the June 20th session is now available on the Music Hackspace site.
Also, I’m working on some minor improvements to Flora resulting from the workshop and should be ready to publish them in the next day or so.
