the notated abstract.

"If the primary stuff of music is sound, which I believe, then notation, no matter how ordinary or idiosyncratic, is no more than a representation of the real thing.

Furthermore a description of notation such as this is a symbolic representation of a symbolic representation - twice removed from reality."

Lejaren A. Hiller, Jnr

Ready to Go!

OK. I think I am finally ready to begin experimenting from the research. I have narrowed the focus down to a few select areas, and shall start modeling and coding tomorrow.

Wish me luck! :)

The Architecture of Nature - ebooks

Here are some of the books on mathematics in nature and architecture that I am looking into. Have been playing around with mel scripts from the first book.

Algorithmic Architecture - Kostas Terzidis - pdf - Brilliant book. Includes mel scripts.

The Algorithmic Beauty of Plants - P. Prucinkiewicz, A. Lindenmayer
- pdf - From the guy who coined the term 'L-systems' [Linenmayer-systems] comes a book that decodes the creation of plants using mathematical algorithms.

On Growth and Form - D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson - pdf - Huge book that analyzes how organic forms are created in nature. Now in the public domain.
