Csoundango – for Csound and Charango, it’s a composition based on Andean music, using the pentatonic scale. I made a variation using the hexatonic scale that is sound completely different to create a break in the second part. I played this piece using two Csound patches based on Iain McCurdy’s work: the first is a delay based on the iteration technique within a UDO inspired on Steven Yi’s article in summer 2006 on Csound Journal and the second is a simple “ping” sound playing random notes on pentatonic or hexatonic scales. Special thanks to Iain McCurdy for his great inspiration from his patches available on his website http://www.iainmccurdy.org/
