Otomata is a generative sequencer. It employs a cellular automaton type logic I’ve devised to produce sound events.
Each alive cell has 4 states: Up, right, down, left. at each cycle, the cells move themselves in the direction of their internal states. If any cell encounters a wall, it triggers a pitched sound whose frequency is determined by the xy position of collision, and the cell reverses its direction. If a cell encounters another cell on its way, it turns itself clockwise.
This set of rules produces chaotic results in some settings, therefore you can end up with never repeating, gradually evolving sequences. Go add some cells, change their orientation by clicking on them, and press play, experiment, have fun.
Click on the grid below to add cells, click on cells to change their direction, and press play to listen to your music right in your Mac OS X Dashboard.
Circuli is a generative sound generator that helps you create ambient sound scapes to listen and have fun right in your Mac OS X Dashboard.
Seaquence is an experiment in musical composition. Adopting a biological metaphor, you can create and combine musical lifeforms resulting in an organic, dynamic composition right in your Mac OS X Dashboard.
How to play
The way each creatures looks and sounds is determined by the step-sequencer pattern, and other parameters you can tweak including their audio waveform, octave, scale, melody, envelope, and volume.
You can add multiple creatures to your dish by clicking the ‘add’ button at the top right of the screen. The combination of different creatures results in unique compositions that always change due to the creatures movement. You can click and drag on the world to move around your composition.
Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made.
