365 days – the first three weeks

[For a daily gallery of the action, head over to]

Howdy, folks! Still trucking along over here on my 365 days (as well as a few real-life gigs, which I am being very careful not to get behind on). I’ve got a few highlights I wanted to post here from the last week and a half.

Day 11

A six-voice synthesizer hooked up to a physics simulation of a springy mass. Each voice has 8 sine oscillators and the spring changes the levels of each of the partials.

Day 17

This patch loads a sound file into memory and then plays it rapidly from random points.

Day 20

One of my attempts at generative composition. A markov chain guides creation of an arpeggiating line while other markov chains determine the harmonic progression and structural flow. Nuance is created by introducing subtle oscillations of tempo and dynamics.
