Interactive Mood Music (2018)
This web audio generative piece explores a few concepts. First, the piano chords progression is generated by a first order Markov chain triggering samples of the chords and notes. Second, samples of ambiances (night chorus, raindrops on leaves and emergency sirens) are added to suggest a narrative setting.
