Symphony No. 1 was a collection of modern orchestral work that is unified through a theme. Whereas the theme in a traditional symphony is composed around a melody, or chord progression, this piece uses a concept as its theme. This concept is then applied to a number of different ideas, and through a number of different forms, to create a suite of music. The concept here is asynchronous timing. And this work explores the different ways of presenting notes and melodies in an asynchronous fashion.
Version 1.1 is an opportunity to use the same generative algorithms used by one of the pieces in the original symphony, Fractal, to generate your own music.
