GRO

GRO is a dynamic musical composition for web browsers.

Five audio loops of differing lengths are stacked together to create an effect similar to Phasing or Euclidean Rhythm.

Initial parameters (such as the key and the tempo) change slightly with every page load, and the volume of each loop continuously fluctuates.

The result is a pleasant drone and a simple melodic phrase that subtly evolves over time.

The piece should play on any recent device with any major web browser except IE. Chrome is recommended.
