Making music with text

My Arnolfini commission is now live.  It is a simple but (I think) effective vocable synthesiser that runs in a web browser.  It’s written in HaXe (compiling to flash, javascript and php) with a touch of jQuery.  The sourcecode is here.

I’m back to hacking haskell now, results hopefully before this Saturday when I’m playing at the make.art festival in Poitiers.  I won’t be livecoding in Haskell itself (it seems dynamic programming in Haskell is a bit up in the air while work on the ghc API goes on), instead I’m writing a parser for a language for live coding vocable rhythms.  It’s interesting designing a computer language centered around phonology…
