FontanaMixer

Sound environment based on Fontana Mix by John Cage.

FontanaMixer overview

FontanaMixer is a generative sound environment based on John Cage's "Fontana Mix" (1958). The original concept of the piece uses a graphical random generator that is supplied with the score.

This new computerized version, however, uses realtime sound generation and produces completely unforeseeable sonic results which are reflecting Cage's ideas of indeterminacy, chance, and silence.

I hope the "silences" produced by this program have been authorized by John Cage's estate. We don't want anyone sued...again...

Just great. Pity for those who cannot see music as something more than entertainment.

Interesting ambient style generator. I can see it as useful for things like role-playing game sessions -- especially horror games -- where you want mood sound. The app appears to hog the CPU however - could be wrong.
