Hi all,

Just thought it was about time I posted some music - the first two tracks in a
project of mine to grow acid techno:


The tracks were made and recorded in realtime, using a form of genetic
programming, which develops formal production rules (loosely based on l
systems) for a text based musical score language. This is good for taking
melodic or percussion patterns and slowly developing them, but in some cases
the changes can be quite radical, and can take you by suprise. you can also
hand edit the rules on the fly - which is handy for things like forcing a 4/4
beat, which is sometimes desirable :)

The drum sounds are sampled from the venerable 808, also some synthesised
percussion in there, all synthesis is done by a fixed function performance
synth based on the code from SSM.
