The music collections on this page were produced using a variety of specialty music composition and sound generating software programs. The music is composed by such software and then fed directly into a variety of specialized synthesizer instruments.
There is often a spontaneous factor progammed with this kind of music/sound production that can create surprising results.

We have been experimenting with experimental music/sound generating software as far back as the early "DOS" operating system computers... up to current custom modern artificial intelligence (AI) software developed and/or adapted here at Amaranth Publishing.

Sun Ra (May 22, 1914 – May 30, 1993) was an amazing American jazz composer, bandleader, piano and synthesizer (one of the first to use an electric piano for jazz) player, and poet, known for his experimental music, "cosmic" ideas, large output of music, and colorful and often dramatic theatrical performances.
Sun Ra made many recordings of his work, many of which are available for download and as CDs.

The Requiem

Our experimental and Artifical Intelligence music software examined dozens of examples of Sun Ra's work and then created 7 original unique pieces of music based on the results.

You can listen to the MP3 Introduction to this collection that has Sun Ra speaking over an example of this music...

Software & AI music using math formulas, geometry & equations

These 10 pieces of music use modern software with some aspects of artificial intelligence to generate spontaneous music that is difficult to classify in any known style.
For each piece in this collection, the software was programmed using various math formulas and equations, with a spontaneous improvised factor included to see what music the software would create.
The results of these tests are certainly interesting.....

Maybe Free Jazz?

This is music created using special software to reflect various "jazz" styles. Mostly the music reflects what is commonly referred to as "free jazz". The software was programmed to examine aspects of pieces of music classified as "free jazz", and then to reflect that by creating it's own types of free-jazz. The pieces composed by the software are very unique to say the least.


The results of this experiment are included in this collection.

MP3 - piece No. 1

The People's Conspiracy
Jazz Ensemble

The People's Conspiracy Jazz Ensemble (PCJE) is an example of music created by software that reflects a "jazz" style. The PCJE name was created as part of a project where we used the name as if this was a real jazz ensemble and sent samples of the music to music professor friends, and jazz musicians and aficionados to get their reactions to this new "jazz ensemble".
Well, the reactions were mostly quite positive.
When we then told the recipients of the music that this was not really a human ensemble, but that is was music created using software..... some thought that was very funny, but, others were not pleased at all that this is not a real ensemble. Two even found it "threatening" to working human musicians!
You can listen and decide yourselves about that.....

MP3 - piece No. 1

This collection is made up of 7 pieces of music by the PCJE.
You can purchase the full collection $5.00 in the form of a "zip" file. Zip files are easily opened and the MP3s extracted on almost any system. After your Paypal or Credit Card payment is processed, you will be quickly sent an email link to the download.

The O'Carolan Canons

"Carolan, the last of the Irish bards, slept on a rath, and ever after the fairy tunes ran in his head, and made him the great man he was."
- W.B. Yeats -
from Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry
.



Most traditional Irish music is descended from the Bards, a caste of itinerant musicians who played a wire-stringed harp known as the "clarseach", which has a chiming, resonant tone. The blind harper, Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738), was the most famous of the latter-day bards.

 

 

This collection is made up of 7 interesting spontaneous multi-part canons generated by specialty software using melodies from O'Carolan pieces.
