Something a little different as I set myself a one note challenge. This is the result https://soundcloud.com/biodiode/cosmic-whirlpool

All one note and octaves of that one note used.

When I saw one note I thought this was going to be dull as hell. Boy, was I wrong.

Loved it. Now THAT'S being creative.

Lovely restraint -> creativity, necessity being the desperate lover of invention and all :party:
I particularly enjoy the monosynth "oooo-weeee-oooo" stuff in there. I've always liked that. Reminds me of Delia Derbyshire's 'Doctor Who' work, probably triggers happy kid feelings.

Sounded really clear and clean too

Thanks for sharing your music

Thoroughly enjoyed it...very JW's War of the Worlds in some ways.

One point though:

The one note challenge title confuses me as I can clearly hear perfect 5ths and minor 3rds at certain points as well as the root note and its octaves! :0)

Thank you Aleatoriac glad you enjoyed it.

Thanks ChamMusic. In the words of Sesame Street "Today featured the key C, C and oh yeah C". There may be some overtones from the space whale sound but none intentionally used.

Fair enough, it certainly doesn't matter at all, anyway...

If you used only Cs, the fact that it produced other notes because of the selected patches is actually quite interesting.

I don't hear them as overtones / harmonics at all; certainly not from the space whale sound...not in the right frequency range relative to the other pitches and also quite strong and clear notes with a different timbral quality.

24 secs = minor 3rd

33 = perfect 5th

54 = perfect 5th

1' 06" = minor 3rd

There are others as well.
