This is probably the main overarching concept that directs all my projects.

I’ve been experimenting with generative algorithmic ideas/methods for the past few years. I guess you could say synthesis in general is generative/algorithmic - so it’s more or less influenced my entire creative history.

Interesting read. I think I dabble in partial algorithmic approach.

Rule-based trigger sequences into Karplus modules, so there is a hint of a recurring “melody” that sits on top of a “find a beat that works” coming out a series of logic into logic modules.

My most recent generative exploration using norns and some effects.
