  1. i would only need the "FUNCTION" who starts the midi-play and the function which EVALUATEs (quasi the function behind the short-cuts) thanx
  2. question (from a non-programmer): is there a possibility (a way) to evaluate and/or start-to-play with a delay (of x-seconds) in opusmodus/lisp? would be interesting in the context of using POLYTEMPO NETWORK http://polytempo.zhdk.ch (virtual conductor) and LIVE-evaluation/play of an algorithm (and playing it live by an e-player) on/with a specific (delay-)time. could be something like: "do evaluate algorithm" "do play it in 21.543 seconds" any ideas or solutions? thanx for help andré
  3. two functions i needed for working with POLYTEMPO-NETWORK http://philippekocher.ch/#109 http://polytempo.zhdk.ch greetings andré (defun length-to-decimal (alist &key (sum nil)) (let ((list (loop for i in (omn :length alist) collect (float (* i 4))))) (if (equal sum t) (sum list) list))) ;;; result: q = 1 / h. = 3 ...etc... (length-to-decimal '(h. h. 3q 5e 3h)) => (3.0 3.0 0.33333334 0.1 0.6666667) (length-to-decimal '(h. h. 3q 5e 3h) :sum t) => 7.1 (defun length-to-sec (alist tempo &key (sum nil))
  4. "I changed your keyword arguments to plain arguments, because in my code I retain keyword arguments for named optional arguments, but the arguments of this function are not optional (there is no default value)." sometimes i'm using keyword arguments for "better understandig"/legibility/overview of the function. but i see it's not "state of the art", thanks for the hint! :-)
  5. thanx!! you are totally right... i have documanted it in my OM-library (but not in the code) ...will answer you later... have also a look to: it's more useful for me grettings andré
  6. an output-seq of "a little stupid bot" (works with stochastic broken-symmetrical elements and PM..) - could produce for eternety (never ending)... it works and i am going for holidays now greetings andré

  8. hi wim, thank you for the link... also interesting are "non-trivial machines" (heinz von förster / radical constructivism): http://www.cybsoc.org/heinz.htm greetings andré
  9. that is clear to me ... I tried only to find out what the motivation / idea behind the question of WIM is.
  10. okay, i understand your wish... you would like to have some code which produces/composes a "nearly complete piece" for you - like a bot (for my own use i call this programs BOTS and code it by myself). such bots: a nightmare or a dream for a composer :-) some important books/links TORSTEN already listed. maybe we should not forget DAVID COPE - with his EMMY-things ... https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2Ma0T4VZtmtB6kMmNw7QIA https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Cope p.s. i am not convinced of such "style exercises" (using TOOLS to imitate musical s

  13. i know POSITION-ATTRIBUTE, but the output-format seems to be a bit different. one of the "problems" for coding the function is to distinguish the "pattern-match" (=> multiple-values of pitches/lengths/... comibinations of these parameters) that's seems not very simple, single-values are okay... ...but at the moment i have other things to do (composing/playing), so it will take some time, but perhaps anyone else would create such a function (stéphane, thorsten..?)
  14. dear janusz what do you think about the idea(s) to work with "bar/beat" for post-processing the scores. i see that's - in my momentary work - very useful... for example: insert at bar/beat, cut-out bar/beat/span, overwrite bar/beat, pattern-matching bar/beat/span ... ? by the way i'm coding a little bit on a function which gets me the positions of perhaps a pattern-match (single values and patterns), in the format (bar (beat)), for example (1 (3 4)), but it's not so simple... (a lot of specialities, and i can't put it into ONE code) ... gree
  15. i would like to "structure" my user-library in "UTILITIES", there are so many functions in there so i would like to organize it more specific... like: PATTERN MATCHING SYMMETRIES EDITING SCORE etc... is there a possibility? thanx andré

  17. here is a function that can be used for "post-..." of an OMN score... you could INSERT a sequence by BAR/BEAT (a slightly modified variant of OVERWRITE), so you can place your insert exactly! greetings andré ;;; INSERTING (defun get-resolution2 (be) (cond ((member (cadr be) '(3 6 12 24 48)) 1/24) ((member (cadr be) '(1 2 4 8 16 32)) 1/16) ((member (cadr be) '(5 10 20 40)) 1/20) ((member (cadr be) '(7 14 28 56 1)) 1/28))) (defun insert (seq &key insert bar/beat) (car (last (le
  18. an "old user-function" from my library - just "habit", better with MEMBER. it's now replaced
  19. i think, it works like that :-) now, you could OVERWRITE you original OMN sequentially with inserts... (it's very useful for "post-production" of your generated score!). i have changed the input-format (bar/beat), and it also works with changing time-signatures... i know, janusz or the opmp-programmers could code it smarter, but my concept/code seems to work... so take it and optimize it!!! greetings andré p.s. when wil be approx. the release of vers 2 of OPMO? ;;; OVERWRITING (defun get-resolution2 (be) (cond ((member (cadr be) '(3 6 12 24

  22. hi, yes - with this two functions (get-posititon & inserting-on-bar/beat*) you will have a lot of possibilities... 1) post-processing an OMN without changing the global time structure 2) working with "strukturnetze" (lachenmann) 3) countrepoints 4) idea of palimpsts .... ...so, perhaps OPMO could code it smarter then me (that's not complicated :-))? ... i try to do an example today with something like a "strukturnetz"
