Apologies if this has been previously discussed, couldn't find it here or in the AAA spreadsheet
I've been thinking for a while that it'd be awesome to have Bob and Sam do a software application release, in the vein of Brian Eno: Reflections or Loscil: Adrift. Only, I think they could do way better/ more interesting. (i mean, gen~ exports code, so it wouldn't be too hard would it?)
So what do i mean by "generative"? Really just two things: 1. some level of variation every time i press play, and 2. potentially endless play. User/listener input, while it could be interesting, is not required. But whereas the Loscil app has 4 individual endless "tracks," i think it would be cool if AE did something where the tracks morphed automatically, yet unpredictably.
AE_Live showed us the flexibility of their system. I'm not sure if that variation was built into the system (based on a seed), or tweaked manually between shows, but any rate, it just needs to be built into the system for the app.
I wouldn't care if this was some one off thing, a companion thing to an album/ep, or a release in and of itself.
Maybe this strays too far from what they aim to achieve compositionally?
What do you think?
