So I wanted to use these "melodies" to experiment with computer assisted composing. But it seems to be that this kind of alghorthmic computing is not in the focus of Supercollider. But I am far from the end of the learning process. So I am still sure, that I will find a way to fulfill my imaginations.
What I noticed is that Supercollider is an incredible instrument for controlling oscillators in every way you want. And I found a library to connect the Arduino to the input of Supercollider.
So this is what I am playing with:
I provide the Arduino with a lot of sensors.
|A light sensor|
|A temperature and humidity sensor|
Select the output and filter it and use it as a controlling stream of various synthesizers. What you get? Some sort of ambient music. But I already had to reconsider the choices of the sensors. The steady stream of data does not vary in a timely manner. So I am now experimenting with additional senors from the Android phone.
Attention, this is a long talk:
Here is what you get in a short video:
The programming is not the real problem for the libraries of the Arduino project are well done. It is the interfacing to Supercollider and the music which will take a bit of a time.
