Generative composition?

    This is an easy patch to generate random notes.......
    Could be a good start point to built a generative stuff.....
    Have a nice day.

      The patch has a bug. You need to insert a [+ 1] after the input for
      the upper limit, otherwise the highest value will never be generated.
      Leon may also be interested in the examples on the Litter Power site
      . The coolest examples
      use the Litter Power Pro Bundle, but you can get started with the
      free Litter Power Starter Pack.
      There are also some clever examples of algorithmic MIDI generation at
      Karlheinz Essl's site. You should be able to find this, and other hip
      resources on the C74 "Resources" page.
      Hope this helps -- Peter

      That bug wouldn't hurt so much, but if there is no makenote (maybe with
      random duration generation) the result might be not quite as expected.
      Dependent on the receiving soundsource you'll get nice clusters which
      would go on, or just stop if the last note is eaten...
      (Thats what I would call a bug in design)
      For sure a random generator is per definition "generative", but for sure
      its not composition. You'll need a lot of tweaking to create something
      which is not boring after a while. But its a good starting point, and a
      very good start into Max as well. By listening to the result (in this
      case clusters), you will hear what you don't want to hear, or what is
      missing. This will directly lead to a modification of the patch (for
      example introducing a makenote) to fit you imagination of the result.
      This is the ultimate creative process, which might finally lead to
      generative composition.
      Good luck and welcome...
