Patternium Is The Hot Or Not Of Grooves

Lets You Vote Beats Up Or Down & Help Them Evolve      06/06/10

Patternium Is The Hot Or Not Of Grooves


Sonic Charge, the creator of Synplant and uTonic, has introduced Patternium - a Web site that's sort of the "Hot or Not" of grooves. 

The site creates computer-generated patterns for Sonic Charge's uTonic synth, through principles of evolution. The sounds and rhythms you hear at the site are produced by algorithms running on their servers (even the names are made up by random). 

Here's how Sonic Charge explains it:

Our servers are regularly spawning new generations of a thousand unique patterns, each one being the cross product of two other patterns picked at random. The higher votes a certain pattern receives, the more likely it is to get picked and bear offspring into the next generation. This means that you may participate and influence the outcome of Patternarium simply by voting.

Grooves generated by the site are public domain.
