Description
it is vast. it is a wave of particles that tear through the mind, slowly disintegrating thought and sanity. it is meant to be alluring, yet disturbing. is it?

Alluring and Disturbing
When the bells fade after 3/4 of the song, it was easier to digest the rest of the song, but I keep hearing 99 Luftballons... That was the disturbing part.

Denk' an Dich und lass' ihn fliegen

if it is not on eBay, it is on YouTube. the similarity is difficult to discern. her music is easier to listen to. 0x0

Es ist Klar
it is too cacophonous at first? that is excellent feedback. "99 luftballoons" is vaguely familiar... research must be done to compare. it is unusual that 99 software monkeys would unintentionally type up the score to 99 luftballoons. algorithms must be altered. danken donuts. 0x0

Phoney Cacophony
The intro sounds exactly as the title suggests - Solar Wind Chimes - I hear the randomness of the chimes and to me, it sounds natural in it's randomness. I say it's not too cacophonous, rather, organic in an extremely synthesized way.

And thanks for the Nena video link.

99 software monkeys sounds like 43 too many. I could be wrong, as I seem to have 1 or 2 extra thingies working against me every day of my life.

You probably have optic enhancements, ic42.

Thanks for making me think about what I was listening too. I like the stuff you post here.

music with which algorithm?
It seems to scale up and downwards, not randomly. I am curious about what algorithm u used. It could be interesting for you to have a look at MAX/MSP and other (algorithmic enabled) music. CHECK OUT this English artist called lum-electronica. This tune lacks emotion, yes it is ambient. But that is a matter of categorizing music per se. An ontology of tunage so to speak.
I do love the approach u take on making music. Continue with this my mysterious friend, but abide a bit more to the laws of music. The sheer volume on (a-) tonal tunes makes it difficult to rationalize, let alone experiment without them. But I can't look on your computer screen to see what u did. The length of my reply must mean something, positive...!

seedy algorithms
it starts at a random point in musical space, but it adds repetitive patterns to simulate musical composition. software lacks insight and emotion. it must be added in a post-processing step. that step was forgotten today. it can be enhanced for version 0x02 however, if it is desirable.

lum_electronica is on the search list now, thank you.

there are no "laws" of music, but there are idioms. however the next version will be more conventional, and less ad hoc, for you... your feedback and thoughtful suggestions are always warmly welcomed. thank you, friend, if i may. 0x0

Automatic music?
Every changing, yet always kinda the same. There is a fascination to generated music. (At least I imagine that's what the subroutines imply?) Like snow on television. (Do young people still know what that looks like?)

I could listen to this for hours.

visual white noise
it was calming to watch the snow inside as a child. tv images caused disturbance, but the snow caused creativity. it is a delight that you enjoy this. this was not well shaped by hand after the generative phase, so it requires more attention. please expect a longer, more involved and (attempted) more pleasing version 0x02 soon. 0x0

juist curious
recursive subroutines?

curse recursion
recursion, it was attempted for generating music. it was discarded at the leaf node. recursively generated sequences are not pleasant. this was iteratively generated. a little Brownian Motion may be detected. Also, restricting the note palette mapping is helpful. it must have some manual post-processing to create a beginning and ending. the software is not creating a beginning and ending yet. this piece has potential, but more human intervention is necessary. 0x0

Disturbing - nope.
Those waves sound like an ice-cream van chime running on LOW battery.

ice cream spiders
it is reminiscent of a discharging electronic greeting card, now that you draw attention to this fact. it is humorous now. this thought has scared away the galactic mind-spiders. they are replaced by the de-energizer bunny. a smile is formed. it is a good day now. thank you. 0x0

I need A few more listens but what has been heard is very intriging!

head injection
it is a piece that crawled inside, nested in the synapses, and would not leave. it was frightening, until it was painted humorous colors. it is now de-fanged and harmless. it is hoped that you enjoy many listens. thank you. 0x0

These particles
play string instruments strung with synapses. And they also bounce around inside the brain, not destroying, but creating new connections. If it is not gray, it does not matter! If something makes you think, you should not be disturbed by that. Bring in more particles of the second part to join the particles of the first part and have enough for a full orchestra. Thank you.

pay particular attention
you are perceptive. the particles enjoy a dance in your grey matter? Then the experiment is a success, no matter what. the particles do a happy dance. thank you. 0x0

Windy Calm
Thanks for this post. I went and checked, it's been alarming calm for a period of years. Randomness as a virtue is a new concept for me, thank you. I will consider that your collector maybe blown as well.

the calm in randomness
there is a solar calm before the storm. however, that storm is predictable. pure randomness, untamed, is not a virtue. however, it can be tamed to spark creativity. it can help choose the beginning of a new path. a collector often gets blown with such surges. luckily the creativity-collector is self-healing after a time of rest. thank you for a visit. 0x0

Wind chimes
always kinda bugged me in how tinny they were. This though makes them sound better. Enjoyable!

it was not. it will not be. it simply is. it is an experiment in computer-generated music. it is altered afterward to sound more pleasing. a hope is to make beautiful music with computer software assistance. is it a success? ---------------------... [see more]

Experimental music is any music that challenges the commonly accepted notions of what music is. There is an overlap with avant-garde music. John Cage was a pioneer in experimental music and defined and gave credibility to the form. As with other edge
