Abstract

The main idea behind the BigBang rubette is to give composers and improvisers a way to use the software RUBATO® Composer in a way that is more intuitively understandable, more spontaneous, and more focused on audible results than on the mathematical underpinnings. After discussing the types of facts available in BigBang we need to examine how we can create them and what we can do with them. From earlier in this book we now know that both of these activities, making and manipulating, are instances of processes. BigBang keeps track of these processes in a more sophisticated way than other musical software, especially ones dedicated to symbolic structures.
