Edge Tech
Generative Music Composition
Over the past few years musicians and songwriters have begun experimenting with Artificial Intelligence as a music composition tool. At the moment use of AI in music composition and songwriting is still a cutting edge technology; but programmers working in collaboration with songwriters, or musicians that can code themselves, have made the process more accessible.
Ableton and Muse
After researching hardware and software methods for building a Biometric Sound System, I think rather than going a full DYI route, that I should purchase the Muse 2 EEG headset and use the Ableton Suite software with Max/MSP.
Music + Sound
Biometric Sound Project
Biometric Sound Project update. Muse has decided not to keep their project open and has removed all their SDKs and development links from their web site. The developers forum is still open at the moment, but I wouldn't be surprised if that goes away as well.
Music + Sound
Biometric Sound System
This will be a repository for information and various edge tech experiments. I will use it to keep links to research and thoughts about technology, EEG devices, music creation hardware and software readily available.

What's up with the Ravens?

My father's ancestors originated on the Island of Corvo in the Azores. "o Corvo" means Crow or Raven in Portuguese. My father always considered Crows and Ravens good luck, and would call out "Hello brother!" whenever he would see one.


I find the large, black birds fascinating. Crows and Ravens are highly intelligent, and have the ability to recognize faces and use tools. They are also able to teach those skills to their offspring.
