Just me and my PC - experimenting with computer generated music. Wasn't sure what genre to use - maybe noise ? ;-)

No real band. Just me attempting to write a Java program to generate music that is interesting and easy to listen to. So far, I've had enough success to continue with this project. It's very challenging but since I've been doing software and web application development for 30 years I thought I'd give it a try and hope for the best. The output of the music generator is a MIDI file which is easy to edit. I use Sonar Producer to select patches, tweak the volumes, velocities & panning of the instruments. The MIDI generator program uses text script files as input for note pitch & note durations and also for chord progressions. A lot of random elements are inserted by the program so that each MIDI file created is different in some way.
I do play acoustic rythm guitar with my son Jim who plays a Cajun accordian. We jam a lot and play downtown in Fells Point on the street when the weather is good. We got a street performer's license about 4 years ago which required an audition and a $25 initial fee but since then has been renewed by Baltimore city at no cost. It's always a lot of fun. We meet people from all over U.S. and the rest of the world.
Cajun, bluegrass, classical, jazz, folk, rock, country, electronica and almost everything. I love most all music genres.
Sun Java SDK 6, Gateway DX4200-09 computer with home premium 64 bit Vista. Sonar Producer 8 and Goldwave for tweaking the stereo mix. I also use a Yamaha AW16G for recording external devices, an e-Mu Planet Earth rack synth and Yam DXG-505 kb.
