Hello, With regard to contemporary music, are there any members using Computer Assisted Composition (CAO) software such as IRCAM Open Music (distributed free for PC, Mac and Linux platforms) or Opusmodus ( paying and exclusively on Mac) ? They have the distinction, besides many functions, to offer natively the tools of the Set Theory for composition or musical analysis. Based on the Lisp (Common Music), Open Music uses a visual programming language with which the various functions in patches are modularly connected while Opusmodus is based on scripts with pre-defined functions. It also offers a score editor and a midi player to play the different parts in a sequencer / Daw via virtual instruments (Vst (i)) or hardware.
Hey guys, here's a short piano piece I wrote about a month ago as an exploration of pitch class set theory. That being said, I feel that the set that I chose (0247) is a little bit too "tonal" for you to really be able to tell that it was written using pitch class sets in the first place. So I'll probably end up wanting to give it another go. But I would love to hear your thoughts on what I do have, as well as any thoughts you might have on composing with pitch class sets, and what you might have done differently in order to create something that actually "sounds" like it was written using set theory. Oh and sorry for the mediocre sound/performance quality.
