An algorithmic composition by Robert van Heumen for SuperCollider and automatic instrument
'Moving On Second' follows a 4-chord progression derived from the aria 'In Deine Hände' from the J.S. Bach cantata 'Gottes Zeit ist die allerbeste Zeit', by accident pitched one semi tone up from the original. The automatic instrument is controlled by the computer through the MIDI protocol. It was premiered on June 3 2015 during Orgelpark's symposium 'Bending Baroque' using the Sauer Organ.
'Moving On Second' is inspired by John Zorn’s Redbird and Mike Ink’s Polka Trax.
