Music notation is probably one of the earliest forms of sequential programming. Each note on a stave informs the performer what action to take and the output is generally reliable and repeatable. Of course one thing that makes music making different from computer programming is the ability to add human expression and interpretation to the performance – adding pseudo-random events and character to the sound that is created. Nowadays computing systems are able to introduce fuzzy logic parameters, and modern processing speeds are sufficient to enable humanised responses to be incorporated. With all this in mind, it’s no surprise that collaborations between computing and musical experts have resulted in wild and wonderful innovations that unlock new forms of musical expression and creativity.
