Paramawareness

web browser music composition tool

try it out

Designed to help develop one's awareness of basic sound / music composition-related parameters.

Generates musical textures of up to 4 layers of synthesized sound.
The resulting music never repeats, yet always retains the character described as a combination of parameter settings, which can be stored as presets (aka. textures).
This can be useful for sketching in a top-down / subtractive composition approach, e.g. to quickly come up with a rough structure of a composition by finding contrasting textures, representing different sections.

Built using React and WebAudio framework Tone.js. Still under construction, needs a more intuitive UI and a few more parameters.

Based on a patch I built in Cycling '74 Max in 2018, Musical parameters-awareness tool, to help myself practice improvisation and composition more systematically.
