Interstellar String Quartet was created for the contest of works for string quartet in the first half of 2013 year. The main idea of the quartet is mixing of late romantic approach with minimalism, impressionism, expressionism and rock music. EWQLSO solo strings were used.
Rock for classical radio. A rock tune is used with CMix algorithm: each note determines the classical music track and the length determines the length of this track played. Also, some special patterns of tracks are used.
This composition was created by a specially designed CMix algorithm, which allows to mix randomly selected audio segments of random length and random position. In the video you can see how this track was created by the algorithm.
Composition consists of a single track of cross-faded random classical composition segments of random length (CMix algorithm used) from my library of 5000 most known classical tracks by 150 most known composers.
All 150 composers were sorted by birth year and then for each of them 1-2 compositions were selected, depending on how much composer is known.
So, first segments are from the most old composers and the last are from the most contemporary.
