Artsong Information


Instead of using traditional music notation to specify musical structures, ArtSong provides algorithmic 'building-blocks'. ArtSong is pure algorithmic with no hidden pre-composed musical sequences so musical decisions are under your control. After you select and configure the algorithmic 'building-blocks' and specify their properties ArtSong's composition engine will implement your decisions. The resulting compositions are your original work. ArtSong is a great tool for composing fractal music, included are chaotic attractor algorithms, fractal image algorithms, and L-System text-string algorithms. Features:
  • Over 30 algorithm plugins including random, chaos attractors, image to music, text to music, etc.,
  • Open ended... new plugin components and algorithms can be added,
  • Develop and use your own custom ActiveX algorithms,
  • Multiple composition projects can be opened simultaneously,
  • Automatic conversion of MIDI files to ArtSong projects,
  • Unlimited tracks and algorithms per project,
  • Drag and drop between open projects,
  • Algorithmic generation of compositions up to 3000 measures,
  • Setup and directly compose an entire score at once or compose in real-time, manipulating parameters while playing the composition,
  • Recompose sections of an existing score,
  • Multiple levels of composition 'Undo',
  • Save projects as MIDI, ArtSong Projects, or simple CSound score files,
  • Build custom libraries of data patterns, presets, and project templates for reuse
