Fibonacci Music: Updated Graphic Score

27Apr10


Screenshots from the Graphic Score to Fibonacci Music

As part of my research into graphic scores, generative music and systems art I have been developing a deterministic method of generating a musical composition based on the Fibonacci Sequence (ie a recursive additive system that constantly adds the to previous numbers together to get the next number in its sequence) Providing the seed numbers (f0 and f1) are equal to 0 and 1 respectively, the numeric sequence will always be the same. There is no randomness in the sequence, although in applying it to a compositional system the calculations very quickly become too large to know what the result will actually sound like. In this way, there is a tension between what is essentially a deterministic system with only one potential outcome, and the chance operations involved in allowing the system to determine a large aspect of the composition.
