Description
it is an ancient secret word. this secret word is melted to ic42. the melted word is used to create the music automatically. it is computer-generated music of tunetoys. it is altered to add peppermint to pop music. it is now lolly pop music.

this music is a response to beautiful music created by davajonah and reinholt56. they used the same software to create music. please listen to their tunetoys as well.

peppermint rain
perhaps it is too sticky. this is a simple first step of music. perhaps a video could add interest. it is an idea. thank you for an always comment. 0x0

tunetoys
sounds like an interesting software. it felt to me like this took a little while to get going. right around the 1:00 mark it really started to mesh for me and got all exciting and then it started winding down already! it's a great little arpeggio line. i hope you will develop this more. :-)

limited software
it is a short word, therefore it created short music from it. an important post-processing step for this music is to add repeats. it was a forgotten step today. perhaps a repeat in a good place can be added. and a new section for development. it can be xyzzy version 2. thank you for interest in these experiments. 0x0

Yes!
Very interesting sounds. I, like Kassia, like the transition at 1.00, the tune becomes less staccato and there is what seems to be a build up to a crescendo or a change of musical tone. You should work on it I think.

Using a longer word sometimes works, you do get a longer midi, but it is often too complicated to do anything with!

I'm really glad to see others using this software. I really like it.

choose words carefully
it is important to experiment with input to achieve useful output with tunetoys. many attempts. much studying of his algorithm. finally it was decided to use four-letter words to enhance the timing of measures. the word became "xyzyic42". it seems that the "xyzy" created a slow movement. "ic42" created excitement and arpeggios. i prefer the second half as well. perhaps a version 2 will emerge. more work is needed on input and output. it was amusing to return to this software after years. thank you for awakening the memory. 0x0

Fun 2
This was fun too, if not quite up there with davajonah's supermix, but it inspires me to try too. See you around soon... /Henke

it is a high bar
davajonah creates music very skillfully. it is exciting to learn from so many. perhaps i will hear new music from henke soon, as well? perhaps it will also be a tunetoy piece. thank you for listening. 0x0

Hi ic42.......
Your experiment was a success as far as I am concerned. I look forward to hearing more of your arranged inventions.

Take care.

paradox is good
it is true. simplicity is very complicated to create well. however, egobandit, you are an artist. you understand this well. it is very flattering if you recognize the complex simplicity here. thank you for such appreciation. 0x0

Hectic, but visible...
Surreal images would welcome this as a backdrop. It seems to be meant for something other than itself; it does not stand alone. It is too scattered, untied, to stand alone. It begs for a responsible partner. Such an equation might make peppermints bloom into roses.

I would like to try this tunetoy software.

life is unfinished
it is always an experiment. this is just a beginning. this music has images to give it dimension. however, images are difficult to recreate from memory. it will take creativity and time. these are elusive for ic42. perhaps you will experiment with tunetoys. it will blossom with your touch. please share your bouquet. it will be sweet. 0x0

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]
