Techno from the command line
Haskell is a 20-year old advanced, open-source purely functional programming language. It’s designed to allow rapid development of robust and concise software.
Why is this interesting? Well Alex McLean has hacked Haskell enough to create a techno programming language. Commands for sounds, rhythms and rests are programmed from the command line, and the software plays a techno-based loop based on the input.
It sort of reminds me of tracker software, but a little more cut down, and somehow much more cool. I actually like the groove that the music gets into.
