  1. OM is a great learning device.


    It also has great PCS support.

    I learned that the equivalent of functions in tonal music is similarity in atonal music.


    Is there in OM a system function to calculate the similarity as demonstrated here?



    v1.0 ©2014 Michael NorrisThis Javascript allows you to calculate the similarity functions between a list of different set-classes. It uses a number of similarity functions that have been published in peer-reviewed journals. Most of the them have



  2. I am working as user xyz inside a OM workspace, in a non-standard folder (actually located inside an Ableton project, to keep things tidy and close to each other).



    Ableton project: /Users/xyz/Music/Ableton/Projects/2024-04_018 Project

    OM Workspace: /Users/xyz/Music/Ableton/Projects/2024-04_018 Project/2024-04_018


    I can output the latest score as midi inside my workspace folder.


    (compile-score *last-score* 
                   :output :midi :file "/Users/xyz/Music/Ableton/Projects/2024-04_018 Project/2024-04_018/v.mid"
                   :if-exists :new-index)


    This works fine, but I rather would like to be more flexible by using a folder path representation to current OM workspace.

    How can I store the midi, without referring to my local folder path explicitly?

    What's the correct form in the folder path, which always refers to OM workspace ?


    I tried ~/ , but this seems not a proper symbolic folder path representation to workspace.

    Thanks for help.


  3. Beginners question:

    Starting from a single melodic omn sequence, would it be possible to have function in Opusmodus which calculates a chord progression, which would qualify to harmonize the input.


    I am aware that this is a underdetermined problem, so the function would require some further inputs constraining the solutions, like harmonic rhythm, size of chords, tonality, mode,  interval ( i.e. tertiary, quartal). Even if the solution space is vast, a random solution, which may be fixed with seed would be great.


    I know about gen-chord… but harmonization spanning multiple melody notes seems more complex.


    Any thoughts?

  4. I am a OM newbee, so forgive if this already implemented or done before.

    I understood from the video linked below, that Austbo did compile the colors percieved by Messiaen in a catalogue.

    He used colors to backtransform them into musical dimensions.

    I guess this is an obvious usecase for parametric composition, so I am pretty sure someone in the OM community tried this or was inspired by it already.

    Wanna share your explorations?
