  • Starting Your Computer Music Journey with Clojure and Overtone in Emacs

    I'm really fond of the idea of writing music like this.

    From all available implementations of the idea, I probably like Extempore ( the most. Extempore provides a low-level C-like language (xtlang) which compiles into LLVM and can be meta-programmed from a variant of Scheme (TinyScheme I believe). This arrangement makes it possible to generate the code for the audio graph from Scheme, compile/optimize it via LLVM, then drive it in a live-coding fashion from Emacs. Best of both worlds (high and low).

    My personal, much simpler attempt in this space is Cowbells ( - with this one you can live-code FluidSynth (MIDI soundfonts) from Clojure + CIDER + Emacs, representing musical phrases either via Clojure data structures or an alternative text-based syntax (which is translated into the former by a compiler).
