Music Machines

The intention behind the Music Machine project was to create a number of small, simple programs that generated music within certain parameters.
To date there are thirty one Music Machines most of which can be downloaded by clicking here or on the image below.

All of  the first 20 Music Machines were written using Realbasic on a Mac running OSX.
All are now available for both Mac and Windows.

As the Music Machine project has grown I am now developing them as
stand alone installation works or one off pieces.
I am now using a raspberry pi computer and arduino uno to run the machines and programming in python.

I have recently developed Music Machine 1 for live performance - read about it here.
You can also download the score and perform the piece by following the instructions.


I am currently developing Music Machines 4 and 26 for live performance by string quartet
and have written two new machines (27 and 28) for Casio digital horn both of which
were performed at Exeter NonClassical on 30th June 2013

Music Machine 30 is the first physical machine - read about it here
