Deviate excerpts: October – December 2008

January 7th, 2009

The following mp3s are short excerpts (0:30 – 1:39) of musical output from Deviate, a generative music performance environment constructed in MaxMSP.

Output is generated as MIDI messages which are routed to a host application (Cubase). This application hosts various synthesiser/sampler VST plug-ins, and can also be used to record incoming MIDI events.

These mp3s are short extracts from live recordings and have not been edited or altered. All MIDI content is generated within Deviate/MaxMSP. Individual notes are indeterminate; the user specifies parameters such as arrangement, density, and transposition.
