[EdP code] Boolean Sequencing code

Yesterday, Les Hall suggested we should make the software that created Boolean Sequencing available to all.
And so we did!
Here's what he had to say:

"Thank you for listening to my Boolean Sequencing music. It is created with a program that I wrote in the music programming language ChucK. The program is an automatic pseudorandom song generator, and I've given away the source code so you can run it yourself for free. To run it you need to get the freeware ChucK miniAudicle which is multi platform (Win, Linux, Mac).

To get you started, here's a quick tutorial:

1. download and install ChucK miniAudicle
2. download the program by right clicking and saving the file
3. start ChucK miniAudicle
4. open up the program
5. click on "Start Virtual Machine" button
6. click on "Add Shred", the green "+" symbol
7. listen and enjoy

It automatically generates a song every time you run it and saves it in "strat.wav"; check the preferences to change the "save" directory.
You can also change the parameters of the program at the top of the code file to alter the way that the music gets generated. See the source code comments for explanations of the parameters.

You are free to use, modify, distribute, and even make a profit from my software as long as you credit me with authorship. If you use the software a lot and really enjoy it or if you make a profit from it, please consider making a donation to Also take a look at the forum and online radio station at for some fun and excitement. Thanks, and enjoy the music.

Les Hall"
