Fugue Step

Experiment, Music, Web, Web Audio


Fugue Music is a contrapuntal compositional technique in one or more voices which was used by famous composers like Johann Sebastian Bach, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Ludwig van Beethoven.

Since I am mostly using digital audio workstations (DAWs) like Ableton Live and Bitwig Studio which use a linear timeline I was fascinated by the concept of fugue music, which instantly allowed me to create complex melodies because of its overlapping nature.

Fugue Step brings this concept to the web, allowing anyone to experiment with this technique. I mainly created it because I see great value when combined with DAWs via Web MIDI and to learn about building frontend-components with Vue.js.

The next version will featured Web MIDI out as well as MIDI clock.

The project is heavily influenced by the excellent Fugue Machine, an iOS-app which uses the same technique.
