Algorithmic Composition


Digital Media Research Centre (DMARC), University of Limerick. Autumn 2017.


This module is part of the B.Sc. in Music, Media and Performance Technology at the University of Limerick.

In this undergraduate module at DMARC, University of Limerick, students use Max 7 to create an algorithmic composition. Topics include stochastic distributions, chaos equations, finite state machines, cellular automata, and fractals. A mathematical approach to music permits students without a background in theory to nonetheless create aesthetically interesting work.

The resources used for this module are taken from my own Max curriculum.
