Seaquence is an experiment in musical composition. This flash based sequencer can be used by anyone, in fact it gets used by hundreds of people online everyday. The developers behind Seaquence have adopted a biological petri-dish appearance, which ultimately stimulates a metaphor, for creating and combining musical lifeforms into unique, dynamic compositions.
The way each creatures looks and sounds is determined by the step-sequencer pattern, and other parameters you can tweak including their audio waveform, octave, scale, melody, envelope, and volume.
You can add multiple creatures to your dish by clicking the ‘add’ button at the top right of the screen. The combination of different creatures results in unique compositions that always change due to the creatures movement. You can click and drag on the world to move around your composition.
Compositions can be saved by clicking ‘share’, which can then be sent to others allowing them to hear what you’ve made. This demo video gives you a feel for how to create your own Seaquence composition:
Seaquence is an original Gray Area Labs project created by the very talented individuals, Ryan Alexander, Gabriel Dunne and Daniel Massey with support from Gray Area Foundation for the Arts. Check out sequence that somebody made earlier here.
