Gilbert Lister Research is a music research micro-laboratory, working on new ideas and products at the intersection of music and coding. And with a particular interest in, and emphasis on, melody.
We love a good tune. And we want to know why. How to make one. And how to encourage more of them.
At the moment, the microlab has three main research threads:
- GoldenPond is an evolving library / domain specific language for describing chord progressions and other higher-level concepts of music composition and theory in code.
- Gates of Dawn is a parallel set of experiments for describing DSP and synthesis engines in code.
- Art Toys : A collection of interactive composition / performance tools.
