Algorithmic Composition

Nov 08 2006 | 5:45 pm
Hey all, I'm studying Max/msp at school and have really taken to the idea of Algorithmic music composition and was wondering if anyone had patches they might be willing to contribute to give me ideas of some of the different ways people approach it. I found a supposed EP7 Autechre patch with an explanation of how it works and learned a lot from that, but wondered if there was anything else out there which I could look at and get ideas from.
Thanks, Brett
P.S. I have read that there is a Autechre Confield patch some where out there and was wondering if anyone might be willing to pass it on.

yes open music is great but it is slightly different of max in terms that it is not object based. some people cant work with these. indeed for some ecven max is hard to comprehend. as of your saying max is not a great algorhtymic machine? well if x=2*3=6 is not an algorhytm than what it is it?

Actually, could someone please pay Mika, who wrote that *gorgeous* score editor (ENP) for PWGL, loads of money to build a Max/MSP object to host ENP? Having the PWGL notation interface in Max would make my decade!

Oh yes, that would be awesome.
