Here is a thread of music sketches that I made with #TidalCycles, originally to post on Instagram (hence the 1-minute long format) ⤵️
Tidal sketch number 2

Another rather basic loop using a synth that I wrote myself. I quickly gave up the idea of typing all the code as I record after that, as it became close to impossible as the complexity of the patterns involved increased.
@js0000 thanks for the nice words!
yes, the audio is generated by a SuperDirt, a sampler written in SuperCollider. It is the default "backend" for TidalCycles, but I know there are people who are using other software (but I don't know much about them). In the end, it's just a matter of sending OSC messages to something that is able to understand them and turn them into sound.
It's indeed not a terminal, it's just a simple GUI Emacs, themed, and cropped in the video.
