Genre Flowchart

January 18, 2009 Ideas 0 Comments

I created a very condensed list of genres of music that I think represent most of the musical complexity spectrum. Obviously I do not expect extremely complex results in the early stages of the program. In order to stay motivated, I need to see results, which means I'll need to tackle the 'easier,' or less complex genres first. Though the chart I'm sure does a terrible injustice in its descriptions of the genres, it represents a rough road map for my journeys into algorithmic composition.

The chart is ordered with descending complexity, with the most complex genre at the top and the least at the bottom. I'll be starting at the bottom and working my way up.
