GeRM - Generated Realtime Music
a concept by Non Eric

Until now musicians have used machines to create music. Now these machines become independent. Artists now construct music machines that generate new music on their own. Like planting a seed that will eventually become a plant. Artists create the pattern from which a self-mutating musical idea will be generated. Always different, no starting point, climax or end. The ultimate generative music experience.

The music on this CD was created by using a highly modular and programmable emulation of a "modular synthesizer". The synthesizer’s oscillators, LFOs, filters and vast array of modulators and can be freely combined with random generators. Using a computer screen these elements can by patched together in any order. This mutative music machine is created using loops, random triggers, step sequencers, transposition and volume modulation.
