An Interactive Algorithmic Music System for EDM
Artiin is an interactive computer music system for live performance and composition of EDM. Artiin is able to function as an autonomous musical creator with no human-input, or can generate one or more streams in response to human input: for example creating a ride cymbal pattern influenced by an incoming bass pattern. The system shows how developments in interactive music can be repurposed for a system designed to meet a DJs workflow. This article explores the design of Artiin as well as musical concepts that underpin this work and other systems that influenced its development. Artiin was designed by the author in Max for Live, with multiple custom externals written in Java. While the system is currently used by multiple musicians, it is not publicly available.
