Coins In The River

This is my first attempt at composing generative music. All four harp parts were generated by a set of melodic, harmonic, and rhythmic rules. Minor editing was done after the fact. I improvised the piano in real-time. The drone was performed using Camel Audio’s Alchemy. Tim Conrardy, a member of the talented Camel Audio team, passed away yesterday. So I dedicate this piece to Tim.

    Oh, I like this.

    At first, I had pictured drops of water falling on harp strings.

    After thinking about the title further, I can imagine coins sparkling in a fountain, and all the people who come and go from the fountain. Some make wishes. Young couples, kids with boats, older couples, a random guy on a cell phone oblivious to the beauty around him…

    Thank you.
