First steps for the algorithmic composition with Max/MSP. :)</p> <p>Scale Finder: App that helps you to find notes of every scale you want.<br /> Common Notes Finder: App that helps you find common notes between two scale. Useful when you try to find two similar scales for modulation, without many knowledges of music harmony.</p> <p>Download it from my website, in &#8220;Programming&#8221; Section. ;)</p>

I created this patch because I love the sound of films. I tried to recreate the same ambient in real-time, without other musicians. Only me and my computer, a simple patch that works alone, without parameters. The only parameters you can set are volumes, different from stage to stage.<br /> The algorithm to process the piano is similar to my <a href="http://cycling74.com/project/m4l-real-time-texture-lite-version/" target="_blank">M4L Real-Time Texture Lite Version</a>, but more complex, for example the harmonization of textures.<br /> Some month ago I bought this <a href="http://www.tecontrol.se/index_files/USBMIDIBreathController.htm" target="_blank">Breath Controller</a>, my &#8220;third hand&#8221; when I play. I use it to create a distorted dynamic of processed audio.<br /> I usually play always the piano to process the texture, but it&#8217;s interesting create textures also with guitars or sounds with big sustain.<br /> In the project video you can ear an improvisation and see an A/V project using Emotional Piano and <a href="http://cycling74.com/project/emotional-waves/" target="_blank">Emotional Waves</a>.</p> <p>I hope you enjoy it, this A/V is all of me and my idea of music and visual. ;)</p>

Mathieu. One of the central ideas of HE is that musical notes are related to one another by intervals contained in the harmonic series. The perfect fifth and the major third are the first two non-octave notes in the harmonic series and can be used to create a two dimensional lattice of notes. If you are interested in the details of the lattice I highly recommend reading HE but here are a few key points that will help to explain the video.</p> <p>1. Two adjacent notes that lie on a horizontal line are separated by a perfect fifth. Left/right motion is like moving around the &#8220;circle of fifths&#8221;.</p> <p>2. Two adjacent notes that lie along the up and rightward sloping lines have an interval of a major third.</p> <p>3. Upward pointing triangles form major triads; downward pointing triads form minor triads.</p> <p>I used Jitter to create a visualization of thelattice, MSP to synthesize the sound, and Max just about everywhere.</p> <p>This program can operate in two modes. The first allows the user to explore and interact with the lattice by clicking on notes and chords. When a note is clicked, it lights up and a circle appears around it. The circle represents a &#8220;voice&#8221;. As additional notes are turned on, new voices appear. When a new chord is clicked an algorithm written in JavaScript calculates the &#8220;best&#8221; voice leading that transforms the old chord into the new chord. The circles on the lattice then move to the notes of the new chord according to the calculated voice leading.</p> <p>In the second mode the program steps through a midi file and lights up corresponding notes on the lattice. This is not as simple as it sounds because theoretically the lattice is infinite so for any note listed in a midi file there are many possible notes to choose from (i.e. comma siblings). A second JavaScript algorithm uses a number of heuristics to decide which notes on the lattice are to be activated. If the midi file contains multiple instruments or voices separated into different channels a circle appears around the note that each voice activates. When a voice changes pitch its circle moves accordingly.</p>

With the new package functionality in Max 6.1, it becomes much easier to distribute packages. The idea of the Package downloader is to provide a quick and dynamic way to download packages from within Max. New packages are added to a json file in this repository and the tool automatically fetches this list unload meaning it will always be up to date.</p>

ic (with a few exceptions like the Barrons and Raymond Scott), electro-acoustic music was pioneered by European radio laboratories and US universities. Composing with tapes and electronics was a serious painstaking and expensive affair, prerogative of a restricted elite of contemporary music composers and adventurous sound engineers. At that time there wasn’t any electronic musical instruments market, as a matter of fact, most of the equipment was adapted from scientific tools belonging to radio engineering departments.</p> <p>Sometimes the equipment was built from scratch cannibalizing anything that had wires, tubes, and pots; more rarely, the studios used the few commercial instruments available in those days, such as the Melchord, the Trautonium and the Theremin. Contrarily to what happens today, electronic music in those days was everything but fast and easy to create. A few minutes of electronic composition could take many months of work. Everything was handmade, from complex timbres with multiple sine oscillator bounces (no keyboard was used), to tape editing with scissors and scotch-tape. Even sound envelopes were manually built by cutting tapes’ edges at different<br /> degrees of inclination. The ADSR was yet to be invented!</p> <p>Berna is a software simulation of a late 1950s electro-acoustic music studio. Oscillators, filters, modulators, tape recorders, mixers, are all packed in a easy-to-use interface with historical accuracy.<br /> Explore serial music, musique concrète and tape music or create new strange sonic worlds with instruments inspired by the greatest studios of the early days of electronic music.</p> <p>Berna 2.0 is a major upgrade, totally re-written from scratch.<br /> Berna 2.0, not only has a new stunning realistic UI but also it includes new processors like the Comparator, an 18 bands 1/3 Octave FilterBank and an 18 Bands Vocoder, plus new Tone Burst Generator, two Dynamic Modulators, new Reverb, new Frequency Shifter (with modulator input), new FM Oscillator (with modulator input) and 8 new Complex Oscillators!</p> <p>This is a serious learning and creative tool for musicians who want to explore the way of the early days of electronic music.</p> <p>Berna 2.0 will be available at <a title="Giorgiosancristoforo.net" href="http://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net" target="_blank">giorgiosancristoforo</a>.net in May 2013</p> <p><img src="http://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/p1.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="http://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/p2.jpg" alt="" /></p> <p><img src="http://www.giorgiosancristoforo.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/p3.jpg" alt="" /></p>
