Beethoven’s Grosse Fuge, chord-analyzed by BIAB and turned into a snappy little jazz tune.

https://soundcloud.com/mark_hayes/grosse-fuge-clean

The entire thing was a bit much, so I trimmed it down to a short selection of interesting sections.

The violin here is 100% Beethoven, believe it or not.

BIAB style used was ZZJAZZ.STY. Drums were rendered by BIAB, all other tracks (bass, piano, violin) were exported to MIDI and rendered by Logic.

PS – The original version I posted had effects on the violin which I have since recanted on suggestion: https://soundcloud.com/mark_hayes/grosse-fuge

That's... interesting.

It feels it's on the edge of a melody, but then always going sideways. laugh

Vocal control, you say. Never heard of it. Is that some kind of ProTools thing?

Indeed, just like the original string quartet, which is a massive pile of frenzy.

I was astonished to hear the part at 0:23 sounding as "normal" as it did, which was when I decided this was worth keeping. I love doing experiments like this.

There's plenty of melody in the original and the new setting actually allows more of that to come through BUT the rolling panning of that melody really doesn't allow a brain to process it as such.

Ow, that doesn't sound pleasant! This version should hopefully be brain-friendlier:

I may like the clean sound better myself. I just got smitten by that fuzzy Jean Luc Ponty sound when I found myself making it.

LATER...

Actually, I do like it better. I revised the original post to reference the clean version.

Thanks for the input!

A fine piece of work.
Way above my capacity to digest the nuances.

Sweet experimental re-conceptualization. (How did I type that without spell-check?). Back to original thought: Next? Offenbach's Can Can in 5/4. Fun stuff.

Thanks! Is the 5/4 Can Can a done thing, a party trick for drunk music students or something?
