From Data to Music – Max as a Sonification Algorithmic Composition Tool

Music is a physical phenomena: we can hear and sometimes feel sound waves, we can look at printed scores and chord charts and hold CD’s but these contain only a representation of musical information. How we represent music and each of the many musical characteristics is an important decision for the algorithmic composer. When creating algorithmic music we have to make choices about how we will represent musical information. This in turns impacts how we think about that musical information and affects what we can and cannot do with it.

Today’s algorithmic composition tutorial explores some of these issues and our algorithmic composition looks again at using sonification – a mapping of non-musical data to musical parameters to create an algorithmic piece of music. The key to sonification is how the data is mapped to musical parameters so in this post we’re using the same data with a more flexible interface that allows you to experiment with how the data is mapped to musical parameters.

Here’s a quick video demo of the Algorithmic Composition Sonification tool in action:
