Following on the heels of recent substantial updates to the bach and cage packages of tools for composers, Andrea Agostini and Daniele Ghisi have announced the arrival of a new addition to the bach family — dada. You can find the birth announcement in the Max package manager.
The dada package takes up in one of the places you might imagine that bach and cage leave off: offering experimental and decidedly interesting and non-standard approaches to score generation and computer-aided composition. The newest member of the bach family provides an amazing collection of new interfaces for composition, resources for corpus-based analysis, interesting new geometries for exploration, and some “dada analysis” tools as well.
Note: dada’s relationship to its cousins Bach and Cage is more than skin-deep — you’ll need to have the Bach and Cage packages installed to enjoy what Dada has to offer
