hi, so I was talking to my friend some time ago and we were discussing how to make randomly generated music better, and we ended up talking about generating the chord progression and the time signature first and then picking the notes randomly from there, he didn't believe this would work so here's my proof of concept, feel free to read the code and tell me some thoughts
and for the name of the cartridge, "c3510"(pronounced cesio) is a robot from a distopian worldbuilding i'm creating, he loves experimenting with music, so I thought it would be interesting to theme this cartridge as his "futuristic music box"
This is cool! As someone who doesn't create music at all, I'm always looking for shortcuts and even though it's random and probably not what most would call "music" out of the box...it could be a starting point.
I just went through a few random seeds and a few of the sounds coming out I could see using, or at least building on. The only thing missing is how to "save" or at least output the current music as something you could save and repeat (without having to include all the generator code).
Great idea! Now I just need one for random sound effects.
This actually reminded me of a website called Abundant Music which does something similar to this. I think you might find this interesting.
