About

Schemawound is a solo electronic project of J.Siemasko. Free from the constraints of genre Schemawound is free to evolve and change with every release.

I have previously been involved with a/b HNT records, 203Noise and the Lungs and Paper collective.

I have many albums available for free download at my personal page listed above.

If you are interested in remixes, collaborations, etc. feel free to contact me here.

Most of my current material is made in Renoise, Reaper or Supercollider but I have used a vast variety of software and hardware on previous projects.

A Map To Everything [Disquiet0062-LifeOfSine]

25 Mar'13 12:20 in sinedisquiet juntodisquietjunto

This week’s project involves making music from the basic building block of sound: the sine wave. You will compose and record a piece of music using just three different sine waves, and nothing else — well, nothing else in terms of source material, but the waves can, after the piece has gotten underway, be transformed by any means you choose. These are the steps: Step 1: Devise which three sine waves you will employ. They should be different from each other in some evident way. Step 2: The track should open with just one of the sine waves. Step 3: Add the second sine wave at 5 seconds. Step 4: Add the third sine wave at 10 seconds. Step 5: Only at 15 seconds should you begin to in any way manipulate any of the source waves. Frequencies Used: 125Hz, 237Hz, 1012Hz My Process: Coding up something quickly in Supercollider on lunch break and did final adjustments at home. I decided to see how much I could get out of the sound of just the three sines without any effects. The click is created by purposely cutting the waveform at non-zero crossings. Every other sound is made from adding or multiplying the three sines. This is my 10th piece for the Disquiet Junto and the second piece I have created using only sine waves.

Telegraph Incantation [disquiet0050-morsebeat] By Schemawound All code by Jonathan Siemasko Blog post about this track: http://schemawound.com/post/38127291200/telegraph-incantation-disquiet0050-morsebeat DESCRIPTION: This week’s project explores invokes Morse Code for its rhythmic content. The instructions are as follows: Select a word or phrase. Encode that word or phrase by the Morse method. Record a rhythmic foundation in which the dash is represented by a long beat and the dot by a brief one. Use that rhythmic foundation as a loop for the length of your track, at the speed you desire — speed can vary over the length of the recording. Record accompanying drone/melodic material that takes the underlying rhythm as its compositional foundation.
