AphexTwin Avril 14th SuperCollider cover

Aphex Twin’s Avril 14th is one one of my beloved piano pieces.

Inspired by the work of Via I wanted to make my own version of it.

From a music sheet by Micheal Jordan The code is meant to send MIDI data to an external synthetizer like Modartt Pianoteq.



This is so cool!!!

I’m brand new to SC, was this all created solely by your code? Like notes, velocity, pedal timing etc?

Gorgeous stuff buddy :slight_smile:

Hi @BleepBloops and thank you for your appreciation!

Yes, as you said, all controls are generated by the SC code.
I’ve transcribed all the notes for the left and right hand from the music sheet in the degrees format and I put then inside different Lists.

Then, in order to play them, I’ve created three event patterns (Pbindef).
For the damper pedal instead I’ve used a Task which is sending value 0 or 127 alternatively to CC 64 (maybe is there a much simple way to do that but it worked for me).

Have you seen the code? Here it is if you want to go deeper and please, if you have any further questions, feel free to ask :slight_smile:
