passing variables to the :rotate keyword in tonality-map

Recommended Posts



So, this obviously works:

(setf pitch (integer-to-pitch '(20 19 18 15)))
(tonality-map '(minor-pentatonic :root c0 :map step :rotate 20) pitch)

but this—passing in a variable to the :rotate key—doesn't. (Assuming because it's inside a quoted list?)

(let ((offset 20))
  (tonality-map '(minor-pentatonic :root c0 :map step :rotate offset) pitch))


I'd like to do something like the latter because I'd like to dynamically pass in changing values for :rotate. Any tips or suggestions?


thanks for taking a look, Michael
