and hear my chess to music transcriptions.
the music you are hearing are the actual moves of the game using my formula.
That's interesting you should adding something extra for checks,castling,promotions ext. Another thing you could try is having it droning so that the pieces together could make an orchestral effect.
I am still experimenting with the Idea.
There is a lot of potential scope with this formula.
As a professional composer, I think the idea is interesting and could provide fascinating results. However your algorithm seems quite limited at the time. I heard no relation between different elements of the game and the music. The music was pretty much the same all the time regardless of importance or dynamics of the moves.
How familiar are you with algorithmic composition in general? Like the works of Iannis Xenaxis, for example?
Perhaps you could trash the idea of strict time and key altogether, this would free you for more expressive interpretation of the game. It seems now that you´ve taken for granted that the piece will be in a certain key and maintain 4/4 time. With a crazy idea like this the music could be crazy as well. All the moves happened now on beat one and were identical in shape.
just as an idea, if you use standard notation as input data, wouldn´t it be a fun idea to use the ?! and !? symbols to give emphasis on the musical events as well as the chess moves?
I´m looking forward to hearing you develop this concept further. All the best.
Thanx for the input Plevanto.
Your absolutly right!
I am still experimenting with the idea and there is so many ways I could twist the formula. Gonna have to keep chipping away at the idea.
I agree with the above post: good start but needs work. I think you need more instruments working off the board; for instance, would it be possible to use the rank and file organization to create chords (bass and strings, perhaps?) Any individual move would alter the basic melody but only gradually change the chords!
Of course, implementing that might be difficult. But it's an idea.
Indeed it needs more experimentation
