Max and cellular atomata

    Check out this link, it is a pretty interesting video of Briano Eno talking about cellular automata...

    I was wondering if anyone out there in max land has had any experience using this technique to develop generative music or control systems.

      all already on your system if you have jitter installed.

      check out Peter Elsea's work on the subject.... he did wonderfull midi pieces with it.

      I'm in the early stages of planning a dissertation project for my music tech degree on CA music. I'm not so interested in the implementation - L-systems and the Wolframatic patch seem like perfect ways to do it - but more the different ways the data can be utilised. There are three obvious ways i can see CA being used - texture-based work (like the Wolframatic patch) - serial-esque music (mapping value to MIDI notes) and rhythm generators. I want to see what else can be done - perhaps working along the same lines as Ollie Bown's ctrnn object - where the connotations with the CA itself could be dropped, and the data used simply as some nice numbers. If anyone else has anything interesing that they have done, or that they know has been done, I'd love to hear/see it. You may even feature in my bibliography in return!

      Robin: You might contact Charles Turner, who delivered a nice paper on Xenakis' connection with CA at the Xenakis Legacies Symposium last June. I have his email if you want to contact me privately. He used to lurk on this list, but I believe he no longer does.
      Another paper that was not able to be delivered in person: http://www.uoguelph.ca/~jharley/Miljkovic/Miljkovic.html
      Hope that helps. --Nathan
