Favorite way to randomly trigger phrases of music
I've been thinking about Brian Eno's approach to generative ambient music, where (if my understanding is correct) he will basically set a bunch of undulating semi-random sequences of differing lengths in motion and then sort of capture the best bits and crossfade them together. This is how I understand Reflections (expert) was done. I think he actually worked with a programmer to make this happen in the app and probably used that design for the album we bought or listen to on Sp*tify or whatever, but I wonder how one would approach this method in an Audiobus setup. One thing I was thinking was to make long 6, 8, 16 bar samples, map them to keys, and trigger with a midi sequencer that does gentle randomization such as Xynthesizer. One thing I've done in the past is create loops of different lengths in Loopy and just play them until I get sick of it.
