Pei Cetho

I didn't change the generator for this week. It's just another run with a completely different sound going on because that's what happens when you run a generator like this.

I did fix a but afterwards after I got a song that was all the same notes, so let's see what that's like next week. Let's find out whether I want that as a feature instead because it did bring some manner of consistency into the songs (basically the Markov chain wouldn't generate new values, it collapsed the waveform and would cause a repeat motion, but a different one each run, which is why I might not want it gone).

I love how hectic the percussion is, really gives the whole piece a sense of urgency. Procedural ftw!

Sounds like electronic pop corn. Which is to say, addictive tasty pops of sound.

I dig that the piece starts out at a slow tempo that builds into the hectic percussion and then it winds down again by the end.

This is upbeat and fun! I like it. To me this seems like a coming of age tune for your generator

I agree with NWSPR, I wish my popcorn cook time made these rhythms.  The percussion is very cool!

I think I gave it a manual touch-up to be extra urgent.

It's also about as long as it takes for microwave popcorn to pop, coincidence? Yes.

That's pretty much my MO the last couple of weeks. I need a better way to do it though.

It's got a bit to go. The thing is, alongside the two other generators I have, I'm not exactly sure how far developed this is. There's a bunch of theory from those being applied here, a bunch new, and a bunch dropped, so who knows.

It can now. Before this song, this song didn't exist, but now it does so you can play it over the sound of popcorn.

This is neat. There's a sense of urgency that's interesting.

I'm picturing tiny pixel taiko drummers having a go at it in your algorithm. I know that's not how code works, but that's how my brain works smile

I'd like to think that's true. I know it's not, but the random names are an interesting SEO thing.
