  • Anyone who want to really hear the chimes but has either Safari or Firefox on OS X wil need to download the generated MIDI file from the Listen link. Quicktime will then happily play it.

    I think I'll take the source and reimplement it in ChucK for fun. I'll post it here later; if I can find the chime sound generation algorithms as well, I'll see about synthesizing them too. I'll just use a nice Fender Rhodes that's available with the ChucK source.

    In my copious spare time. :)
      • ChucK is, well, it's a language for music which gets rid of a lot of the nastiness that you have to try to deal with when actually doing music instead of computer music.

        It has built-in support for synchronized, deterministic multithreading, nice unit-generator-based sound synthesis, and an amazingly understandable syntax.

        Plus it has the ability to let you interactively start up and shut down "shreds" (its deterministic threads), so you can build up compositions on the fly.

        Highly, highly recommended. htt []
      • Actually, I just went on and on about this a couple days ago []. It's a music language I can actually like.

        Works fine on LInux and Windows too.
