I hope some of you will dig this, as controversial as it may sound, I believe that Frank would (& maybe does in spirit
this voice-controlled harmonized (and/or reversed & sometimes arpeggiated) canon system
could be seen as inspired by Frank's "Resolver" concept & a continuation of it :
"For the sounds that don't resemble any other instruments, we have a whole classification of noises: one being the Evolver, where a sound starts off to be one type of an instrument, and by the time the note is finished, it's been turned into maybe two or three other instruments, all with a smooth transition. Then we have Resolvers, where different types of resynthesized vocal or instrumental timbres are located on each of the four partials, and by depressing a single key on the keyboard, you get a four-note chord that is actually four independent melody lines that resolve against each other to a final payoff. Then if you depress the key at the end of the payoff, you get a bonus of another bent. So you can have little melismas, little eight-note melodies, that occur, and all you do is push the key down, and it sings some kind of Renaissance cadence or whatever. Two of the partials could be resynthesized voices, one could be a resynthesized violin, and the other a resynthesized bassoon. Instant Renaissance ensemble when you hit each key. So you imagine what happens when you play a chord [laughs] -- it gets very absurd. It enables you to write things that you couldn't deal with under any other circumstance."
— Frank Zappa, The Sin In Synclavier, Guitar Player Magazine, June 1986.
This is a 100% live recording, I don't press any "play" button here,
the ("virtual") band only plays responses to the notes (the score) that I hum in its general direction
(through my audio-to-midi conversion microphone booth/oxygen mask) in real time
now please don't be mean if you don't dig it,
& please note that this isn't supposed to be a solo act,
I designed this system as a way to generate improvisation-friendly modal/rhythmic space-times
that musicians & poets can meet in, interact with & collectively explore (see my channel for examples of that),
if you listen carefully, you'lll hear that the music coming out of this system actually begs for fellow improvisers to interact with,
