Message from Another Planet, version 3

How to post a piece

This is a newer version of “Message from Another Planet” by Jacob Joaquin as modified by me, in an effort to demonstrate some good practices for writing pieces in Csound with HTML5:

  • I have updated the WebAssembly build of Csound for this Web site. Some of the C++ opcodes are now supported, such as the signal flow graph opcodes, the fractal noise opcode, and so on.
  • The code of this version will run, unmodified, either on this version of Csound for WebAssembly, or on csound.node for NW.js.
  • When the piece loads, previously saved values of control sliders are automatically restored.

This small piece by Jacob Joaquin (tumblr, SoundCloud, GitHub) shows how to create a fairly complex sound with very simple means, just a lot of harmonic sine tones.
