Dear musician, performer, composer and arranger:
I currently resides in Crefeld, I have studied computer science and electrical engineering.
As a composer and arranger I work in the field of Cryptography, steganography and Linguistics.
The same way as Birds twittering was an inspiration to Olivier Messiaen, I am developing a way to encode an alphabet into musical score and rhythmic values. Please confer Euclidean Rhythms discovered by Godfried Toussaint.
also I'm involved in algorithmic composing software projects like soundhelix, which Expands the Euclidean rhythm (based on the Bjorklund algorithm due to E. Bjørklund) generated by the given number of pulses spread across the given number of steps.
Basic example of my rhythms are given here:
My rhythmic alphabet:
final String SYMBOLS_RHYTHM = "I IΔ □X X I I ix△ □ ○ X i X I IX Δ Δ X I X □ Δ ○ △ ";
My prosaic String
BigInteger n4= fromString("The quick Brown Fox Jumps Over a lazy Dog! ", 56, SYMBOLS_PROSA);
Result of basic base conversion or encoding from base 56 to 17
System.out.println(toString(n4, 17, SYMBOLS_RHYTHM));
IIΔIxXΔ□ IIIIIX△II XIX iI△□△ IIIΔΔXX□ □ △ΔXI □△ΔΔ□Δ□X XIIx
Voila, and this is something you can play. Confer Rhythmoglyps as explained by Peter Giger.
It could also be written and composed in runes, but Germany has a sad historical tradition of abusement of Nordic viking age traditional languages. Runes are mostly political abused, but rhythmoglyphs works fine for children.
We do have to differ between Traditional Indian Rhythms, oriental drumming and African drumming.
India plays traditinally on tablas, patterns which are not euclidian, some cuban percussionists plays sometimes traditional patterns, which are not Euclidean. The rest of oriental and African traditional patterns are Euclidean. No exeption of this rule is currently known to me.
We also have to know that the animals do not change their way to communicate, Still children write to paper in different langages different words, to resemble the Animal speach.
Human languages are evolved over thousands of years and changes through the centuries.
Still the basic and most distinct way to communicate acoustically is the african bush telegraphy.
Hence tha topic of my research is to create both a rhythmic and a melodic communication language for
Classical music instruments. It is Musical steganography but any cryptographic protocol can be added as a tunnel to the basic base conversion.
Another example, say you are in a coffe shop and wants a cup of coffe,
I take out my Soprano recorder and plays CAFE BABE, cafe babe. Which in a musical way tells the waitress that I wish a cup of coffe. Upper case C is the deep C and lower case c is the high c.
Sometimes it works. I play a tune and get my coffe as credit for my musical performance.
I have also created a full chromatic melodic pitch alphabet, but this still work in progress.
