This project has alternative implementations of Bitrhythm.

A few things implemented from scratch in Bitrhythm are,

  1. DSL for describing music sequences - similar to the tracker notation

  2. A core Music Loop that runs your javascript code, with an edit mode

  3. A knob and guard abstraction for programming automation

You can use Bitrhythm for making music similar to the music possible with trackers like Buzz / Renoise / OpenMPT. I call this approach Hard Coding music. This is also known as executable music in the Demoscene.

You can also use Bitrhythm for Live Coding and Algorithmic composition.

Future additions

  1. Ductape JS port

  2. Raylib port

  3. Replicate complete demo from js

  4. Opengl shader live coding
