Sorry, this is pretty bad. I really phoned it in today, couldn't even be arsed to get off the couch.

< 80 lines of SuperCollider, written in less than an hour. Very dumb bassline/beat w/ generative hats and very uninspired Brownian melody.

At least it's short.

Brownian melody? I'm bobbing along here, this has some potential!

Wow, thanks man. Maybe it was worth redeeming after all? I guess it's just the drums that are super weak sauce, haha.

Brownian is just a random-walk algorithm - like instead of going all over the place from step to step, you move just a little bit from value to value. So that's where that kind of naturalistic but meandering feel comes from - it's just moving along the scale a note or two at a time. It's nice in SuperCollider to just be able to set this kind of stuff up and let it go on autopilot lol.
