Drew Krause: Introduction to Algorithmic Composition

Drew Krause (wordecho.org) presents an introduction to algorithmic composition using Lisp, including several currently available Lisp music applications.  Additionally he discusses his own music work in Lisp, which includes search, constraint programming, random processes and other techniques.

Drew has been using Lisp for over 10 years to compose chamber, orchestral, electronic and choral works. He is the author of the Common Lisp Composer’s Library for algorithmic music composition and is on the music faculty of New York University.

Complimentary pizza and beer are provided by Meetup.

    Suddenly, at the bottom of this page, I see my four attempts to download the video, and all are slowly downloading. All right then, but to avoid confusion, some additional line like "download started, please wait..."was needed at the spot. Vimeo failed to make downloading simple & comprehensive enough.

    Unfortunately, the video refuses to download -- in fact, when one presses the blue word DOWNLOAD, an arrow pointing down appears for a fraction of second and dissolves toward the bottom of page -- that's it...

    The video is here: https://vimeo.com/54910233. Please note that there was a problem with the microphone on the night of the presentation (it was off) so there is no audio until 3:08.

    Very interesting theme. It would maybe also be interesting to organize it as a workshop where the people can also try out the different techniques by themselves.

    Only downside was maybe that the speaker didn't speak very loud and it was hard for me to get everything (maybe also because I'm french :) ).

    Thanks for all

    It was awesome. Lisp, Mathematics and Music rhythmically merged into a composition of artistic innovation!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
