what is chiclet (aka the DSP music box)?|
myself and three artists/musicians/engineers decided to fulfill a lifelong dream of ours and build a platform for portable algorithmic and generative music. we would control the hardware and software for creating music. not only that, but we were able to correct some of the shortcomings of the original EZKit. here's what the board contains:

what are the plans for the DSP music box?
currently we are not planning on making chiclet available for general purchase or development purposes. none of us are too excited to provide techincal support for the hardware and software. however, we are in the planning stage of creating small runs of chiclets preloaded with our music, which would then be available for purchase in record stores. this would be (to our best knowledge) the first dedicated widesprad hardware/software release of a music composition. interesting possibilities in autonomous song generation are quite exciting, perhaps even revolutionary.
even though our hardware platform will not be avaialble for general purpose programming, i am working with other hardware developers to provide platforms for writing music using my software development tools. for more information on this, go here.
how do i keep informed on future work?
email me at syndevkit [at] dspmusic [dot] org and i'll add you to our mailing list.
