hi! I'm new here coming from a machine learning / python background, discovered creative coding + tidal 2 weeks ago and have been addicted every since! do literally all of the following everyday: writing haskell + learning music theory + listening to techno performance + bookingmarking every thread in Tidal Club.
So I was trying to catch up on sound design + music theories in general and found this guy's channel and he's putting some great classes out there (I'm not affiliated with him in any form whatsoeverrrr)
For example this video I found particularly accessible and useful:
simple effective hihat strategies -
so I try to recreate this in Tidal.
Any feedback is welcome, regarding this snippet (tidy up, improve the code, etc), or methodology in general - does following a more traditional school of producing kinda defeat the purpose of "GENERATIVE art" or "algorhmic art"???
