Ealing Autumn Festival

Hi Everyone!
Thanks SO MUCH for getting back to me.

The tech part of the project has now made a new start, as we no longer have access to/possesion of the original work.

So this is what we have:
– Mozart’s Dice Game which we can work only manually with dice and manually copying out the music bars which are shown on Mozart’s grid.
– a version using Sibelius software displaying the music bars and grid with blank to copy and paste in the music bars, chosen by throwing dice, and to make a new music piece on screen. I’ve used my MacBook for this.

Now it gets more exciting:
– a new Python zip file – the_digital_mozart: attached.
This is a new piece of software in Python.
It contains the music bars: score3.py
It contains the grid: table.py
PLUS classes.py and digital_mozart.py
These were originated by my son in the 4 hours before he had to leave on a travel expedition.
I finished inputting the date in the score and table.
lilypond.py is there to make a visual display in screen but we don’t know how to make it function.

– python_music_analysis zip file found its way on to my computer a couple of years ago and I don’t know where is came from but is seems to show how a Python file can be linked to Midi. It plays back via a Sibelius file.

We are not actually using RaspberryPi or SonicPi, just my MacBook.
However the Robin Newman files looked as though they might shed some light on the matter.

It looks to me as though we might have all the bits and pieces to put things together but we’re the arty bit.

The overall teaching idea is to show how the fundamental structure of music works using coded patterns as well as musical notation to manipulate them and make new music.

Let me know if you want to know anything esle – we are currently feeling sort of desperately determined.

All the best
Gillian
