Brian Bourassa Three Generative works, GS1, GS2, & GS3, split by two non-generative works as Inserts IN1 & IN2.

Probably the darkest, most mysterious generative works I have heard, full of unexpected elements and dogged on by a deep pulsating drone which comes and goes. Favorite track: GS2.

This album was created by programming generative compositions, which were 'recorded' - and thus in fact made 'ungenerative' - and used as a starting point for this record (GS1, GS2, and GS3). Snapshots of generative music, one could say. Hence the title 'Generative Stills'. In between are two regular recordings (IN1 and IN2). For some info about Generative Music visit
