Abstract:

GenSession is a zoomable user interface in which short clips of musical passages can be created and positioned on a 2-dimensional workspace. Clips can be created by hand, or with automatic generation algorithms, and can be subsequently edited or sequenced together. Links between clips visualize the history of how they were created. The zoomable user interface is enhanced with an automatic re-framing mode, and the generation algorithms used support dynamic parameters that can be sketched as curves over time. GenSession allows melodies and sequences of chords to be generated quickly without expert knowledge. Initial user feedback is reported.
