Frederik Vandecasteele - Elevate


This piece is written in 15-EDO, all sound samples being tuned to the fifteen tone "major" scale. I used evolutionary computation (a genetic algorithm) with human fitness assignment to create all melodies and rhythms. The main piano type lead melody consists of five different parts, which fade in and cut out according to a pattern determined using a tabu random walk algorithm.

Tuning information:

15-EDO, Fifteen-tone "Major" scale, tonic 440 Hz.
