Topics I've Started

Online Procedural Music Editor

19 February 2013 - 09:34 AM



This should actually be a reply to an old topic about my procedural music editor:





Anyhow, the editor is now available here:



A lot of generative music

05 September 2012 - 08:48 AM


I have improved my generative music system and added some proper voice leading and structure.

EDIT: ...Another Youtube video with some filter effects

EDIT: ...Youtube video playlist with some handpicked songs

Here are 40 songs that the system generated with a single seed as input:

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40

Yes, they sound a bit similar sometimes and the mixing is sometimes terrible (the melody drowns in other stuff) but it is still kind of cool I think Posted Image

Editor for reactive/generative music

22 March 2011 - 02:24 AM


I have created an application for composing generative/reactive music.

It is available here: Reactive Music Language Editor

The main idea is to build a state machine that executes actions (parallel/serial/repeat etc.) one measure at a time. The actions set properties in a music generator module that has a lot of functionality for melody, harmony and percussion. There is also support for scripting (JavaScript).

There are presets available but they are not very good. They demonstrate some of the features though.

If you can't/don't want to run the application, you can watch some lame videos instead:

Reactive music demonstration

01 October 2010 - 03:10 AM


I just wanted to demonstrate my latest reactive/generative music creation tool:

Reactive/Generative Music Tool

Descriptions of all the parameters are currently missing but will probably arrive next week.


Try my generative music system

05 August 2010 - 11:40 AM

I have created an online demo of my generative music system (and a lot more).

If you are interested you can try the Applet here.

Just click the right mouse button and select Presets/Music 1 in the popup menu. The node at the bottom is the result. Zoom with '+' and '-' and pan with the arrow buttons.

The node at the bottom is the result "score". Click on the node and then on the green "play" button to hear the music. It might take a few seconds before the music starts but any longer than that is a bug :(

This particular preset graph only creates simple arpeggiators and strums, but the beat generation is more interesting perhaps.

The nodes are unfortunately not documented, but you can just ask me if you run into trouble :)
