Replied to Windchimes by an author

This is a generative piece I built just before my daughter was born. I envisioned something that would soothe a baby, like a mobile but with sound. Like wind chimes but smoother. As it turns out, once she was born I forgot about most everything, including this project. Much later I rediscovered it and found it soothing myself!

Chris, this reminds me of Brian Eno’s iOS app Bloom.

  1. Thanks! Yeah Brian Eno is a huge inspiration to me for this sort of music. I donโ€™t think he invented it, but he definitely fine-tuned the ideas and created a new movement of โ€œambientโ€ and โ€œself-playingโ€ music. Another great example is the score to the video game โ€œSporeโ€ โ€“ itโ€™s procedurally generated based on the characters and environment in the game. It might be obvious, but Iโ€™m fascinated with this idea of composer and machine cooperation- itโ€™s part of why I love modular synthesis so much.
