grid1 refers to the problem of fitting sound material into the grids of bars and holes, pitches and durations; of measuring time in discrete integer divisions. A computer program written in Pure Data was used to generate the musical material of this work and then it was translated into a musical score using an early version of the software notes and lilypond. grid1 explores the outcomes of a system in equilibrium, of events floating without directionality. The real time interactive computer system uses William Brent’s timbre-id software to classify percussive attacks and uses them to generate sounds that shift between rhythmic patterns and timbre.
