I was reading about Generative Art and learned about the Max application made by Cycling74. Max is a visual environment for designing your own audio/midi manipulation tools. I decided to download the trial version and try it out. In typical semi-obsessive style I then spent the rest of the day unable to stop experimenting with it 🙂 The end result is a thing I’ve named Music Box. This generates melodies using notes on the Major Scale and randomly generated numbers. Here’s a video of it working. I intend to add a Minor Scale option to it as well, but this will likely require a complete rewrite.
