factorOracle

C source for the factorOracle Pure Data external.

NOTE: This is an alpha phase project, still under development and testing. There may be bugs. Currently, the external is verified to run on Mac OS Mavericks 10.9.5 with the Pure Data v0.47 64-bit binary.

Visit https://puredata.info/docs/developer for instructions on how to build the factorOracle external for your architecture.

What does it do?

Factor oracle is a graph representing at least all of the substrings of a word. It can be built incrementally in linear time and space. A factor oracle representation of input from a live musical performance can be built in real time and parsed using a variety of heuristics to generate music in the style of the performance.

See factorOracle.pdf for a detailed description of this implementation.

See factorOracle-demo.pd for usage.

See https://vimeo.com/adamjameswilson/eighteen for a video example of factorOracle used in a live performance.
