"Kambanglah Bungo" is a traditional folk songs in Indonesian archipelago reflecting a romantic expression for Minang Land, West Sumatera. Swinging notes reflects unique pattern of Minang songs as lyrics emphasizes mood of in love with Minang land. This videocast shows the regeneration of the song computationally by understanding of complex memetics and evolutionary algorithm.
"Tanduk Majeng" is a traditional folk songs in Indonesian archipelago reflecting living in coastal area in Madura, Eastern Java. The song tries to express feeling on sea-shore as a maritime society, harmony of the terrestrial living earned by the sailing. The music shown in this videocast is "written" computationally. The computation is calculating the computational memetic aspects of the song Tanduk Majeng, and regenerating the "other version" of the songs by using evolutionary algorithm.
Ati Raja is a folk traditional song in Indonesian archipelago, Makassar, South Sulawesi. The song is spectacularly rich with legatos and complex melodic expressions and harmony that possibly related with monotheistic spirituality theme. This video shows how the research of Physics of Music can computationally generate version of Ati Raja related to the memetic and expressive properties.
This video clip shows the regeneration of songs based on Credence Clearance River's (CCR) Cotton Fields trying to capture the nuance of American cowboy living as country pop-rock music.
This video clip shows the regeneration of songs based on The Rolling Stones' "Honky Tonk Woman" trying to capture the nuance of the dance a la disco pop-rock music..
