Thanks for your responses and references, was very helpful!
So I have arrived at a point where I try and bring my ideas into a device. This could be called a ‘new version’ of sampling the layers of my grains. By using Ableton as a basis for sound sampling and drawn layers for the visual samples I am able to bring all of them into an instrument. The instrument is layered interpretations of musical terms; Midi, Beats (offbeats), transpose (key), breakbeats..
The final compilation brings a new version of the grains…. a whole new grain is created! What is the “turning point” that brings to a new grain?
I will have the first prototype of the device and sound sampling for Tuesday.
