Seaquence

Seaquence is an experiment in musical composition. Adopting a biological metaphor, you can create and combine musical lifeforms resulting in an organic, dynamic composition.

How to play

The way each creatures looks and sounds is determined by the step-sequencer pattern, and other parameters you can tweak including their audio waveform, octave, scale, melody, envelope, and volume.

You can add multiple creatures to your dish by clicking the add button at the top right of the screen. The combination of different creatures results in unique compositions that always change due to the creatures movement. You can click and drag on the world to move around your composition.

Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made. This demo video gives you a feel for how to create your own.

  1. I did myself this favor, right after martin shervington reshared this post, and I had a good portion of good fun while playing with it. There is so much to explore, to put together, to create. Wow!

  2. Yeah, somewhat addictive, eh, Martin Lüdicke? 

  3. Glad you liked it Gideon Rosenblatt and Martin Lüdicke. I think I’ll play again… 😀

  4. I like that you can share out your creations Martin Lüdicke, and then build on other people’s work. Here’s a riff I did on yours:

  5. …where your drum machine reminded me of Billy Jean at high speed…
