Generative music is a term used to describe music which has been composed using a set of rules or system. This series of six episodes explores generative approaches (including algorithmic, systems-based, formalised and procedural) to composition and performance primarily in the context of experimental technologies and music practices of the latter part of the 20th Century and examines the use of determinacy and indeterminacy in music and how these relate to issues around control, automation and artistic intention.
Each episode of this RWM series is followed by a special accompaniment programme of exclusive music by some of the leading sound artists and composers working in the field. This show presents two contrasting generative works by German artist Florian Hecker and Japanese composer Ryoji Ikeda.
