To celebrate 100,000 published tracks on the Free Music Archive, we've put together some data that we hope you will use for creative purposes!
There's a github repo over yonder with a handful of wavetables created using data from the first 100,000 published tracks. FMA benevolent software overlord Ross Oldenburg cooked up some more data for visualization / sonification use here: http://bit.ly/2agaoPM
To kick things off, I made a little song using the wavetables in the repo above. The wavetables created from monthly publication and creation dates were enveloped by the wavetables created from yearly publication and creation dates and used to drive a pulsar synthesizer whose pitch was modulated with the wavetables created from track durations. The pitches spell an F major Add 9 chord, because you know... FMA. :-)
Please share your creations!
