Novelty Search Live

Novelty Search Live is a experimental open-source tool that helps musicians find musical inspiration in Ableton Live. It uses a evolutionary algorithm to continuously evolve new audio-clip and synth-parameter combinations, guided exclusively by Novelty Search. Finally, it takes the countless new musical ideas it has discovered, and generates a map with t-SNE which is interactively browsable. Read more:


After everything is setup and Ableton Live is open, run python from your console to start. You can tweak the following parameters via the command line:

--name (Song Name)

And tweak many more settings inside the "" config section.
