using sines to make simple number series sound <strike>dreamy</strike> eerie.

i'm still waiting for rukano to explain what exactly the LFGauss is doing here ..

fork{loop{h=[5,7,8].choose*(2**(2..8).choose);play{Splay.ar({SinOsc.ar(exprand(h,h+(h/64)),0,0.1)}!64)*LFGauss.ar(9,1/4,0,0,2)};2.wait}};

// really i wanted to do this:
fork{loop{h=([33,38,40].choose.midicps)*(2**((0 .. 5).choose));play{Splay.ar({SinOsc.ar(exprand(h-(h/256),h+(h/256)),0,0.1)}!64)*LFGauss.ar(19,1/4,0,0,2)};4.wait}};
// or more like a constant drone:
fork{loop{h=([33,38,40].choose.midicps)*(2**((0 .. 4).choose));play{Splay.ar({SinOsc.ar(exprand(h-(h/64),h+(h/64)),0,0.1)}!8)*LFGauss.ar(19,1/4,0,0,2)};0.25.wait}};
// primes
fork{loop{h=(4 .. 100).choose.nthPrime*(2**(0..3).choose);play{Splay.ar({SinOsc.ar(exprand(h-(h/256),h+(h/256)),0,0.1)}!64)*LFGauss.ar(19,1/4,0,0,2)};2.wait}}; 
// Fibonacci
fork{loop{h=(List.fib(15).choose)*(2**(0..4).choose);play{Splay.ar({SinOsc.ar(exprand(h-(h/64),h+(h/64)),0,0.1)}!64)*LFGauss.ar(19,1/4,0,0,2)};2.wait}}; 

// but they were too long.

recalls me some sounds in "Contatc" with JFoster...very good!

Very nice.

The LFGauss is a slow envelope.
