thanx, but just a project/coding sketch - nothing serious 😉

another example/experiment  - you hear 4 times the same "brownian-phrase"  but mapped on different tonalities...

 

 

 

untitled.aiff

 

a) diatonic/major

b) blues-heptatonic

c) chromatic

d) messiaen-modus

 

greetings

too much code and too complicated to post - I do not have the time to write a manual.

 

it's a "machine" that creates multiple "brownian bridges" combined with "pitch-contour" and "add-rnd-dust".  it's an all-in-ONE tool/machine/bot...

 

I'm interested in repetition/difference in other contexts than traditional ones; but "brownian bridges" then resemble ornaments. when the sequences are short - brownian bridges are "rnd-processes" between 2 fixed points - then you will keep ornamental sequences between this 2 points/pitches...

 

(I did not work with a score, just coding and listening - it's only sketching/testing, not composing. and all the examples are "rnd-generated"/not-composed by the machine, you could produce more and more...)

      Here's a small piano study using my new function make-chord-if-length and few others from my personal lib.
      Enjoy 😉
