COMPOSING WITH PROCESS: PERSPECTIVES ON GENERATIVE AND SYSTEMS MUSIC #8.1 Transcript
Curated by Mark Fell and Joe Gilmore
The eight episode in COMPOSING WITH PROCESS: PERSPECTIVES ON GENERATIVE AND SYSTEMS MUSIC continues to look at how composers working with generative systems implement change in their works. This episode focuses on models of change using mathematical structures derived from complex dynamic systems observed in nature.
Through advances in mathematics, physics and biology, the programme looks at how composers have utilised the central findings of chaos theory and emergent systems — such as cellular automata, Lindenmeyer Systems and fractal geometry — to generate automated dynamic patterns of change.
