The prompt for Genuary 2023 Day 10 is

Generative Music

Made a sketch using Hydra/LiveCodeLab for Visuals and SonicPi for Audio

  • For the SonicPi portion, I decided to make each "Arrangement Function" act as an Orchestra Member

  • For the Hydra/LivecodeLab Visuals, Added the Find Edges filter in post-production and slowed down the animation

The growth is seen
Within the boundaries of the screen
As shown in the scene
Where the sounds follow a particular stream
As the edges blur as it if they were steam
That is looking to burst as the seams

#Two chord based functions, one runs on a random assortment, while the other one iterates

def chordsChoose(notes,minMaj,minMaj2,timeChord,dc,st)
  play chord(notes.choose, minMaj,decay: dc, sustain: st)
  play_pattern_timed chord(timeChord, minMaj2), [0.25,0.5].choose
  sleep [1,0.5,0.25,0.5,0.25,1].tick
end

def chordsTick(notes,minMaj,minMaj2,timeChord,dc,ak)
  play chord(notes.choose, minMaj,decay: dc, attack: ak)
  play_pattern_timed chord(timeChord, minMaj2), [0.25,0.5].tick
  sleep [1,0.75,0.5, 0.25].choose
end

#function for the arrangement

def arrangement(sound,bpm,preeffect,intensity,intensity2,loop,effect,effect2,effect3,effect4)

  use_synth sound
  use_bpm bpm

  with_fx preeffect,mix: intensity do
    live_loop loop do

      with_fx effect, mix: intensity2 do
        chordsChoose([:c4,:f4],:minor,:major,[:c5,:c5].tick,0,dice(3))
        chordsTick([:d3,:f3],:major,:major,[:f4,:d4].choose,2,1)
      end

      with_fx effect2, mix: 0.2 do
        chordsTick([:g3,:a3,:c3],:major,:major,[:g4,:f4].choose,3,dice(3))
        chordsTick([:e4,:a4,:c4],:major,:major,[:g4,:f4].choose,1,2)
      end

      with_fx effect3 do
        chordsChoose([:a3,:g3],:minor,:major,[:a4,:a4].tick,0,dice(3))
        chordsTick([:b2,:d2,:f4],:major,:major,[:g4,:f4,:d4].tick,1,dice(2))
      end

      with_fx effect4, mix: 0.1 do
        chordsTick([:f3,:b3],:major,:major,[:f4,:d4].choose,0,2)
        chordsTick([:g3,:a3,:c3],:major,:major,[:g4,:f4].choose,3,1)
        chordsTick([:d3,:b3],:major,:major,[:f4,:d4].choose,2,3)
      end

    end
  end
end
