Nodal version 1.0 has been released. Nodal is a generative software application for composing music. It uses a novel method for the notation and playing of MIDI based music. This method is based around the concept of a user-defined graph. The graph consists of nodes (musical events) and edges (connections between events). You interactively define the graph, which is then traversed by any number of players who play the musical events as they encounter them on the graph. The time taken to travel from one node to another is based on the length of the edges that connect the nodes.
Nodal is based on an original concept by Jon McCormack. The Nodal development team is: Alan Dorin, Aidan Lane, Jon McCormack and Peter McIlwain. Funding for Nodal research and development was provided by an Arts/IT small grant from Monash University. Nodal software was written by Aidan Lane.
