play with a specific delay

Recommended Posts

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

      I've been playing around with Rangarajan's "Constraint Programming with Screamer" file, and ran across what looks like a bug.
      The program generates this chord sequence (which I assigned to chords-1):
      (setf chords-1 '((h. c3e3g3 ff -q) (h. d3f3a3 ff -q) (h. g3b3d4 ff -q) (h. a3c4e4 ff -q) (h. e3g3b3 ff -q) (h. g3b3d4 ff -q) (h. a3c4e4 ff -q) (h. c3e3g3 ff -q)))
      If I just cmd-1 on that, it displays and plays just fine. If I evaluate this, though:
      (ps 'gm :treble chords-1 :time-signature '(4 4) :tempo 120)
      I get this mess:

      It plays one chord (or rather, discord).
      This seems ok:
      (get-time-signature chords-1)
      => ((4 4 8))
      This looks ok:
      (disassemble-omn chords-1)
      => (:length ((3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4) (3/4 -1/4)) :pitch ((c3e3g3) (d3f3a3) (g3b3d4) (a3c4e4) (e3g3b3) (g3b3d4) (a3c4e4) (c3e3g3)) :velocity ((ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff) (ff)) :articulation ((-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-) (-)))
      What's going on here?

      dear all
      here is a setup for playing midi-files/scores in polytempi / follow the instructions and have fun!
      just ask if you have some questions...
      - personally i will use it for exact sample/e-player perfomance with my pieces which are working with "Technology-Assisted Conducting"
      http://polytempo.zhdk.ch ... in future i will do it all directly from OPMO or lisp - "live score generating" + polytempo-conducting + e-player)
      - i have already done this with my piece MODULAR FORM  but not all controlled by LISP/OPMO, so next step is doing it all in OPMO/LISP
      ...some explanations about the piece....
