    Probably recorded sometime in 2004, Automation was produced using the 'Q' series algorithmic VST instruments and the surviving/enduring algorithmic voice synthesizer XChanter.

    These pieces pose experimentation in mood using simple arrangements and processing to approximate human music of one variety or another, or some extrapolation of it.

    The following compilation, Stochastic, uses the same instrumentation but replaces XChanter with algorithmically generated lyrics which I read to the tempo of the music and were then tuned using MDA TalkBox and a Q series-generated sawtooth to create melodies.

    These pieces are profoundly simple in conception. Still, Track 3 illustrates a truly amazing capacity for very simple algorithms to produce immensely delightful, complex, melodic and human music. Even without intelligible lyrics, the mood produced by a few set-and-forget generators is tangible and memorable.

    Track 26 is an alternate take of Track 3 demonstrating phonemic and melodic variation produced by unrecallable output of the productive algorithms.

    (Technically, note event potentials were derived using sample and hold clocked oscillators of a constant frequency, which is why patterns are reminiscent of each other but not precisely similar).

    Thank you for taking the time to enjoy something elementary and perhaps promising of future technological development.
