The mantra of Computer Music Composition with RTcmix is musical creation and is divided into a series of sonatas and interludes. Following a brief prelude that surveys the history of RTcmix, each sonata focuses on a specific task in RTcmix that culminates in a set of suggested directions for composing the reader’s own, brief work that together could comprise a new finished piece or suite of pieces. Interludes will cover topics introduced in each sonata and seek to explain those concepts in greater detail.
