WACM: Day 6
- Finished and tested genetic algorithm engine
- Reformatted the compositional data structure into a "general property list" that can be mutated by the GA
- Ran some initial tests on composing using individuals of a random genetic population
Something Paul said today really struck me. He talked about "transforming" rhythmic space such that durations and onsets map to a nonlinear space. The space can be chosen in such a way as to create the impression of some degree of rhythmic coherence even in the presence of random input data.
Essentially, consider snapping time and duration to a nonlinear grid. I imagine that this could have interesting consequences for plugins like Fraccut that would be conducive to such paradigms.
