H2RI is an instance of a generative album created by anna xambó in 2018. the 20 tracks of 1′ each have been generated using her self-built tool MIRLC, a library for using music information retrieval techniques in live coding. a basic rule has shaped the audio sources of the album: the only use of sounds of short duration from the crowd-sourced online sound database freesound. each track is complemented with the code in SuperCollider and the attribution to the authors of the original sounds.
