Introducing the Well-Sequenced Synthesizer
The Well-Sequenced Synthesizer is a series of sequencers that are designed to be physical interfaces to play with traditional music theory. The sequencers were created by Luisa Pereira, a research fellow at NYU?s Interactive Telecommunications Program. The Counterpointer, below, is a cross between an electronic arpeggiator and a baroque music rule book. It takes a melody input and responds with voices that follow the rules of counterpoint.
El Ordenador carves chaos into order by applying constraints to randomly generated chord progressions, inspired by the features of tonality described by Dmitri Tymoczko in A Geometry of Music
