The Verbal Algorithm Composer - Free Song Generator

The Verbal Algorithm Composer-Free Song Generator is an experiment in removing the “writer” from the process of creating a composition. Public participants can translate observations and lived experiences into music by filling out a questionnaire that asks them to assess another artwork or project in the festival. Each answer on the questionnaire corresponds to a loop of music that was created using field recordings made along Market Street prior to the festival. When participants return their surveys to the artist collective, they will instantly assemble a “composer-free” song, generated solely by the boxes on their questionnaires. Participants will go home with a CD of their song: a piece of artwork that incorporates their questionnaire.
