Algorithmic Music Composition Using Approximate Mouse Coordinates
Computer Mouse Conference
April 29, 2021
An experiment in longitudal and cross-genre translation, Algorithmic Music Composition Using Approximate Mouse Coordinates, begins with a poem created over Zoom in 2020 as part of Present! v.  Participants were invited to provide me with four words from the text nearest to them. I went away for 37-minutes to turn their words into a poem of sorts. I screen recorded my writing process. Months later when I was invited to the Computer Mouse Conference, I decided to consider the mouse as a score-maker and divinatory tool. I documented the approximate location of the mouse on the screen during the original writing process (think about Benjamin Patterson’s, Ants). Then, I developed a simple algorithm that mapped the concentration of markings to variations in pitch alongside some improvisation in sequencing and layering.
