oh thank you, this is great! Listening to it now at

great music from such a simple idea, as thrilling as it is
depressing. Thrillpressing.

oh, not really. he cites four million possible variations.
from that, aphex picked a select few, in a particular order.
what are the odds of the software doing the same? one over
more molecules than there are in the universe

also, his doesn't have the feels of sound rumbling around a
real piano, and birds off in the distance, and

but, yes, i love it. i just feel afx will love it too and
hire software to write all his music from now. i mean, heck,
saw II was mostly written by a samoan amiga software

I think Aphex is a sucker if he's not using this kind of
system to generate phrases in piece so amenable to
algorithmability. I can see him maybe using something with
dice to achieve similar effects when composing.

This goes back a long ways... I was recently reading that
you can use Guido's hand to compose.

obviously, what's required is that aphex run this software
through his disklavier on a nice spring day, as it swings on
a giant pendulum. post to youtube; aisatsana ten hours

though it's been years since i've used VSTs, i recall
recommending this a couple times here, over the
last few years. it has a "breed patch" feature. you pick a
mother patch, a father patch, and set a slider for level of
mutation. it has incredibly nosebleed modulation
possibilities; fm, subtractive, a mix, whatever. i got to
know its presets extremely well. i remember having a noise
in my head and i'd know which presets to pick and how far to
drag the mutation slider; in under a minute i'd have almost
exactly what i wanted. only minor fine-tuning necessary. it
always made a mess with panning the voices and oscillators
that i had to clean up

then i got into hardware and sampling and youtube provided a
strange analogue; i'd put my feelings into a word or two,
type them into youtube, and find viable things to sample
amongst the results. i called it youtube scrying with
half seriousness

heck, tho, that's been around for ages. guy mentions eno in
his article... but, after crystal, i was quite into a SCI
prophet VS i had. you'd hold enter, 2, and it would generate
a patch with random parameters. the most charming thing was
that the patch name was also randomized, and it had a vague
correlation to the parameters of the random patch, sort of
like a hash. it got to the point where i'd enter-2, enter-2,
enter-2, only stopping to listen when the randomly generated
patch name was the right... i dunno, genre. because it sort
of wound up being a few distinct clusters; a couple
different styles of letter salad that i learned to recognize
as distinct. still curious what the actual mapping was

That's cool as shit. I always lusted after owning a Prophet
VS. Also I think we talked about this exact thing at some
point several years ago so now I'm getting a wash of

yes, i've totally posted about both the Prophet VS patch gen
and Crystal here before, possibly more than once. when
google site search wasn't trash, i'd just google my old
posts and link these things... but, now that's only worth it
when it's something i can't just type up again

perhaps, rewriting will lead to more incidents like this;
