Modular software & programmingMaxMSP, Reaktor, Pure Data, Jeskola BUZZ, and other modular programs. Any questions relating to these programs (patching, favorite ensembles) should be posted in this forum.
I'm currently taking a introductory class for musicians on programming. Which means writing code. Fun but it also need a lot of dedication. Im taking online for free through coursera.org. I recommend it to anyone who is serious or mad enough about computer sound design. Its kind of like what modular is in the electrical analog world. One line can change your composition in so many ways and on top of that, you get to use randomness.
Next Ill be investigating more on generative systems.
there is an awesome video of brian eno talking about generative systmes in music together with will wright who is a master at video games and AI. I can post it here cause my counter is still low. but you should check it out to understand or rather be mesmerized by the oportunities that come with programing sound.
