Generative.fm offers several endless dynamically generated ambient music streams. When you play one of the streams, it generates a unique endless piece of ambient music just for you.
The stream covers are inspired by Ryuichi Sakamoto and Alva Noto’s “Virus” series of albums (photo above). I guess it inspired some of the streams as well.
Alex Bainter who created the site writes:
The pieces featured on this site are not recordings. The music is generated by a different system created for each piece. These systems have been designed such that each performance is unique and plays continuously without repetition.
The source code is available on Github and the instrument samples are open source as well and available at Versillian Studios and Sonatina Symphonic Orchestra.
I am listening to the “Drones” stream while I writing this and looking into how he built it. It is very convincing.
