Chaotic Music: Oblique Strategies Against Humanity

A talk from EMF 2016 by Giles Greenway

On Sunday August 7, 2016 at in Stage C

In which I relate my adventures in generative electronic music based on chaotic strange attractors. Noises will be made with MIDI instruments through Python and Clojure, fully analogue computers and synths, and also JavaScript. I will recount why it's taking me too long, things that worked that shouldn't, things that didn't work that should, and some electronic music history and the dangers of nostalgia. I will start by explaining my failure to understand music, maintained without want of trying.
