does anyone on /g/ have any machine-generated music, like fractal music, they enjoy?

I'll start

#include <stdio.h>
#include <math.h>

int main(a,b,e,l,s,o,n){
for(a=-1;;)for(n=pow(1.06,"`cW`g[`cgcg[eYcb^bV^eW^be^bVecb^"[++a&31]+(a&64)/21),b=999;b;
putchar(128+((8191&l)>b?0:b/8)-((8191&(e+=n))*b-->>16)))l+=a&1?s/2:(s=a&6?s:n/4);}


pipe the output to your soundcard
i recommend
./a.out | aplay

Found this on /mu/

Entire thing is just MATLAB scripts.

no

no

First off, that's not a fractal. It's an image of one. It has a limited resolution and is just an approximation of what a fractal looks like to the naked eye. It is not a true factal.

Secondly, beepmapping works with anything. You can do that with any image, and I wouldn't call it music unless the image was specifically crafted to produce the tones. Without that, it's just noise.

>he doesn't like ambient music
i bet you don't even listen to lowecase field recordings

>>52460385
keep /a/ in /a/ :)

>>52460656
I'm not saying I don't like it, just that it technically isn't music.

Think of it like this:
Beepmapping software is an instrument
Crafting an image to produce pleasurable sounds is like writing a song to play on the instrument
Throwing random images through the beepmapping process is like dropping every object you can find in the room onto the instrument and calling each one a song

While I don't agree that the music is an accurate rendition of a mandelbrot set, it's still music, even if the notes were all quantified in a totally arbitrary way.

cool, thanks

It doesn't even fit the definition of music. If it sounds harmonious, it's only because the instrument was tuned harmoniously.

I like the sound of it. I also like the sound of the word "car keys" but I'm not performing music every time I ask my roommate if he's seen them.

Yeah because Art is so well defined. We could do without you closeminded faggots, tyvm.

>>52460459
What is up with those arguments? I've never seen something like that before. main only takes two arguments, right?

>art
I didn't say art. Now you're getting into more convuluted territory. You could say all music is art, but that doesn't mean that all auditory art is music.


If you want to call flinging shit at guitar strings art, which this is the tech equivalent of, then more power to you.
>>
>>52460385
I don't consider it music.
I guess you could call it ambiance sounds.

Iterated Function Systems, confined within music theory rules, can sound like actual music

Haven't done it myself

>tfw made a bytebeat short song but everyone said it was shit
I just wanted to try things.

Sounds like avant-garde music
