Artful Devices

Today's "Found on the Net" is composer Christopher Dobrian's website his CD "Artful Devices: Music for Piano and Computers". This may not be everyone's cup-o-tea, but I find it very beautiful music. Visit the website to listen to clips of the work. Check out the piece "Unnatural Selection" in it "notes played by a human performer become a population of possibilities from which the program derives its musical material. The program "learns" the music on the spot, at the moment it is played by the human performer, and joins in with a synthesizer accompaniment it improvises based on the music it receives. "

Check it out here.
