WAUGH, EVLYN BRIDESHEAD REVISITED

A moving tale about the destructive force of charm.


Brideshead Revisited is a beautiful tale about the destruction charm can cause.
How the beauty and charm of upper class life can destroy relationships.
Evelyn Waugh paints his characters very clearly.
Charles Ryder is the upper-middleclass intelligent Oxford student
who sees that there is more to Oxford life than mere study.
He sees the upper class and wants to be part of it:
of the parties, of the social circle, of the splendour of their world.
Sebastian is a lonesome soul. Using his religion as a plaything,
he yearns for love, but struggles with homosexuality. Therefore, he has no
romantic relationship with either a man or a woman until Charles arrives.
Charles is not homosexual, but he fills the hole in Sebastian's soul.
It is one of the best books in English I've ever read. It is superb

The Music is the Message¨

(An exhibit at The newMetropolis Center for Science and Technology in Amsterdam, The Netherlands)

Algorithmic Soundtrack Creation
using the YAV Music Engineª and Adaptive Musicª

Adaptive Music (tm), a term coined by Christopher Yavelow, relies on a continual feedback loop consisting of a user or users evaluating music generated by seed material provided by themselves (or itself generated). The software incorporates their preferences (opinions, tastes) into subsequent compositions by adapting the models it uses to compose in the future based upon this user feedback. Adaptive Music models are collections of compositional methods, rules, and constraints. The entire learning process allows the software to continually move closer to the ideal composition for an individual or collective group of users.

Christopher Yavelow launched Adaptive Music in an exhibit entitled "The Music is the Message" at Amsterdam's newMetropolis Center for Science and Technology. The software in that kiosk has adapted to thousands of museum visitors since the museum opened in June 1997.

What you are listening to is a random example of a soundtrack generated by the exhibit at the newMetropolis Center for Science and Technology. Press the button for another random selection.
