Generative Music System In Max For Live

Adam Shechter demonstrates his generative music system – an Ableton Live 8 + Max For Live project created as a school project.

It uses probability tables and calculates the “likelihood” of things happening. There is a drum sequencer, and a melody/pitch sequencer.

My Generative Algorithmic System.

Build in MaxMSP originally as a standalone. Later it wa re-done for Max 4 Live.
This is a short 4 min video showcasing the software. There are many
features that aren’t discussed, or even shown.

This is part of the Electronic Production and Design major @ Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA
