I have been experimenting with algorithmic composition quite a bit lately, and this really resonates with me:

“In many ways, AI helped me become more creative, evolving my role into something resembling more of an editor or director. I gave AI direction (in the form of data to learn from or parameters for the output), and it sends back raw material, which I then edit and arrange to create a cohesive song. It also allowed me to spend more time on other aspects of the creation process like the vocal melodies, lyrics, and music videos. It’s still creative, just different.”

  1. Mmmm, resonance.
    Every time somebody on the radio or a podcast says “something something resonates with me” I think about resonant filter sweeps and they’ve lost me as I think of some of my favorite synthesizer sounds.
    But yeah, I would *LOVE* to get more into algorithmic composition, but I’ve got limitations in my synth setup. I’m wondering if an Arduino could accept input over Bluetooth (I even have a Bluetooth module my son and I were going to add to one of his Arduino projects) and do algorithmic gate and trigger outputs……?

    Arduinos can totally deal with bluetooth, but you need a bluetooth IC or something for it to work. Probably easier is using a Raspberry Pi and its GPIO pins, combined with some python or (even easier) pure data for algorithmic gate and trigger outs
