Internet Resources: Create Electronic Music Using a Biological Metaphor

I used this project this past year to introduce generative-composition to my music appreciation students.
According to the Website:

“The way each creatures looks and sounds determines step-sequencer pattern, and other parameters you can tweak including their audio waveform, octave, scale, melody, envelope, and volume.
You can add multiple creatures to your dish by clicking the ‘add’ button at the top right of the screen. Combining different creatures results in unique compositions that always change due to the creatures movement. You can click and drag on the world to move around your composition.

Compositions are saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made. This demo video gives you a feel for how to create your own Seaquence composition:”

Seaquence is an original Gray Area Labs project created by Ryan Alexander, Gabriel Dunne, and Daniel Massey, with support from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts.
