Opusmodus team has done a great job in supporting L-system. I have been spending some time to understand this feature; seems quite powerful.


I have just uploaded a blog post on this topic. Your comments and suggestions will be very much appreciated.


Does OM implementation support the full functionality as outlined in this paper?

one other interesting approach could be, to use l-systems on a "higher level"... (a lot of work to this is already made in OPENMUSIC)

a sequence like '(a b a c a d a a b a e ...) ;; as a "nonsense-l-system-example-seq"

could be used as a seq for FUNCTIONS... means:


an input/omn-seq would be transformed by an l-system-function-sequence, for example...


a = rotate pitches and lengths

b = invert pitches

c = sample-seq pitches

d = change velocities


so you could work with more complex input-gestalts... and when you are doing this on a second/third-level inside of such GESTALTS you will have something like this MODEL...




i think HANSPETER KYBURZ is "the MASTER" for L-SYSTEMS in MUSICAL COMPOSITION, and i he talked about this things in his lectures




famous pieces with/on this are:
