Description
it is a short experiment in automatic music creation. a choice is made to use a major pentatonic scale. this happy creature is born. he is young, and small. however he has big feet. it is comical music? it makes you smile?

it is bigger version 0x02. many friends said "do not throw penta" into the hamper of doom!" cameron asked for a tuba penta. it is done. a small development for middle section is hand made. penta is bigger and deeper and longer. his end is fixed. he is well fed. he no longer fits into the hamper of doom. he will live on in your mind.

DEEP penta!
I really appreciate you adding the tuba! It sounds great in this mix. Everything has a much deeper, richer sound now. Very enjoyable listen.

deep listen
it is a thoughtful suggestion for addition. it is appreciated. it is also hoped that you continue to experiment. perhaps we use the hamper of doom too often. 0x0

Does fixing his end mean that
there will be no more little pentas? Bigger, deeper and longer are welcome descriptors. He is very flirty now and beckons kindred sparks of mischief to follow where he leads. Arigatou.

end of penta
sumimasen, it was supposed to be "ending is fixed". however, perhaps penta is proper proportion now. he should not make more pentas. it is time to melt mischief over other music. your mischief always creates a smile. thank you for coming and commenting.

He is fun
Was Penta born of the Wolfram family? He sounds like a cousin to me. I like his quirky voice as he spins through the galaxy. He is saying "Listen to the stars" before the ship rotates. He has a cute face, too.:-)

roxylee has a good ear
it is true, penta was a wolfram in sheeps clothing. however, he is hand fed by a human, and some of the wolfram is behind him now. it is hoped that you do not get dizzy listening to penta spin. thank you always for outside insight. 0x0

it is hard work to grow up
perhaps after all the hard work, he should change his name to panta. penta is tired. he is retired. it is time to move to the next experiment. thank you for helping him grow up. 0x0

approaching joy
this is an enjoyable approach. the computer can do much of the work. to play an instrument is too difficult, however computer generated music makes joy possible for me. to smooth and shape the computer music into harmony, that art is interesting. thank you for such appreciation. it is time to appreciate more of your music now. 0x0

cute
and cuddly, but still strong and resilient. it shows how small subroutines can produce complex musical behavior, like an artificial life form? I think it is alive!

game of life
it always creates smiles to hear from you... another cute and cuddly but strong and resilient life form. if penta seems alive, then the experiment is a success. thank you for constant listens. 0x0

IN
fact it scared me more than made me smile.Playful music often has this effect on me.It induces me nightmares.And that´s a good thing in my book.
I will fall asleep to this song and have strangely beautiful dreams for sure.
I can tell you one later sometime.

fear of fun
it is music that is difficult to anticipate. it has an element of surprise. sometimes surprises are fun. sometimes they startle. sometimes they do both. i think that penta likes to startle, and thinks it is fun. it is fun that you think it is a good thing. i will not punish penta then. stories of dreams are always interesting. i am anxious to hear your dream story sometime. thank you. 0x0

This reminds me of....
some musics I have heard by the Aphex Twin, Richard James
Do you ever construct abrasive glitch and make it beautiful...would you consider doing so with a fragile melody like this?
Nice automatic music ic42

richard james is a new name
it is a good name suggestion to research, thank you. i have not experimented with abrasive glitch. however, "make it beautiful" creates some ideas. perhaps a slow morph of a glitch into a pattern, then into a melody. it can be done. some new software tools must be found in the toolbox. i will begin to work on this idea. hajimemashite. thank you for a new idea. it will take time to create such a new thing. it is a hope that you will enjoy a result. 0x0

it is a joyful visit
thank you holleyhall. penta is a strange creature. he smiles because you see the beauty anyway. in japanese, a frog is "kaeru". also, "kaeru" is a verb to return or come back. it is a good luck word. it is time to visit your music in return. 0x0

aaaiaieeee
The sequences are multiplying and getting bigger! Soon we will be overrun with sequences tromping all over us with their big feet.

But I do like Major Penta... his military timing shines through!

it was not. it will not be. it simply is. it is an experiment in computer-generated music. it is altered afterward to sound more pleasing. a hope is to make beautiful music with computer software assistance. is it a success? ---------------------... [see more]
