Rain - Musical Composition written with Perlby jake (Monk)
|on Sep 13, 2002 at 08:29 UTC||Need Help??|
Rain is a computer music composition that I wrote while I was a grad student at CalArts. It is an additive synthesis piece, composed entirely out of sine waves (plus a reverb). I wrote the piece in Perl and Csound.
Listen: Rain.ogg or Rain.mp3
Csound: Rain.orc Rain.sco
Perl: Rain.pl Rain.pm Chaos.pm ComputerMusic.pm ScoreFilter.pm
As a computer musician, I can't stress enough how important of a tool Perl is to me. Perl allows me to do things in Csound that would normally be impossible or impracticle. Without Perl, Rain would have never been written.
Good or bad, I'd really love to hear your thoughts / criticism.
Also... I'm not sure if "Cool Uses for Perl" is the best place to post my Perl compositions. If you feel there is a better place, please let me know where and why you feel it belongs there.
