Generative boxes

The Buddha Machine is a small music player that comes pre-loaded with a selection of composed loops that can be combined or listened to in isolation or even used in your own compositions. A new version has just been released – the device has been around in various forms for nearly a decade, allegedly based on ‘devices used in Buddhist temples to create drones and chants’ (although it’s hard to find information on these that don’t reference the new device). The world of generative music has mostly moved into the realm of apps, but there are still people out there bending circuits the old-fashioned way. Sites like The Magic Mess are the place to dive in.
