Music Computational Engine
In my last article “What is computational Music?” I explained in plain words what is computational music and what will be expected from a software that generates computational music based on Indian Music Computational theory. This article is giving a simple introduction on how to generate computational tones for fun and learning power of computational music engines or software.
Step 1: Go to site called tones.wolfram.com/generate/
Step 2: Make sure to have Quick Time Plug-in installed on your browser.
Step 3: Make sure your computer can play sound i.e MIDI Data.
Step 5: tones.wolfram.com cannot work without Internet connection make sure it works, however it can work without broadband connection.
Step 6 : Now, Look at the compositional controls on the web page, to develop your tone you must have knowledge of following before you really begin developing your own composed tone:
2. Music Pitch Levels
3. Time Based : Tempo
4. Time Based : Duration
5. Music Instruments
Step 7 : Once you have acquired knowledge of concepts mentioned in step 6 to certain degree you can start experimenting to generate computational tones.
Step 8: Assuming that you have some degree of knowledge of music genre, we can select “new composition button”
Step 9 : Select the Style or music genre.
Step 10 : You may select “Show Variations” of the music style you have selected. It shows images for five compositions derived by making increasing changes to the Seed and Rule used to generate them.
Step 11 : One by one select the Instruments, Scale, Tempo, etc.
Step 12 : If you are done, now play or download your tone.
During my last article “What is computational Music?” I explained in plain words what’s computational music and what’s going to be anticipated from the software that generates computational music depending on
