Subject: started a weird list

hope this one won't be off topic

BUYO-BUYO-IGOR has started a bit weird mailing-list.
Topics it talk over are vague but ... well, 'creating algorithmic
music via www' has a top priority.
People who has something to do with electronic-music, csound or max
things, algo-composings, gran-synth things, alternate-tunings,
improvisation, 'living in Japan' things, strange international
language creation....are all welcome.

JOIN in THE "nowheremusic" mailing-list

1. Are you one of those "gaijins" or "kikokushijos" living in Japan?
2. Are you Japanese but learning any foreign language?
3. Do you play(create) music?
4. Interested in co-creating music via www?
5. Feel positive about the word "Public Domain Music"?
6. Like to experiment mixing up several languages?
7. Are you a cute&curious cyber-girl?


if you are to answer yes to at least one of these questions
we recommend
that this is the right mailing-list
you've been searching for
this list
was set to
create a good environment for
the "from nowhere" type of music
anything that has something to do with this theme
will be welcome to talk over
you can chat in any language, but
please DO use alphabets (not Kanjis or things like that)
so that we can also create&share a new experimental language belonging

just send
subscribe nowheremusic
in the body of the message (not in the subject)
for more info mail to

I believe someone else replied as to creating this directly in Max, but
I've used a spreadsheet program to model such equations by copying my
equation into a long series of cells and pointing back to the previous
cell for an input value.  Clunky, but if I graphed this series I could
then visually see what's happening to the values as I tweaked the critical
factors.  Maybe just to get an idea of a range of good initial values in
order to recornstruct it in Max.  You could also export this list of
values as a return-delimited text file to input to Max.

Andreas Weixler wrote about the availability of a fat version of bargraphv.

Yes we will do it and probably in the next 2 or 3 months as I need it fat
for my
work too. If you pay us some money we'll do it quicker:-)

My email address is in the readme that comes with our collection in MAX3.0
MAX3.5. But its a good idea to put it in help files too, I will update
acordingly. - hey I just thought maybe we could use the 'wc' object and you
click on the address and email the person direct from MAX!
