"Generative approach helps the human creativity.
It gives to each artist the possibility to represent their idea in an open way.
When an artist performs an idea, normally he tries to represent it with some artworks,
but each result is not a full representation of his idea.
It's only one of the possible partial performing artwork.
When the artist creates a generative dynamic artwork able to generate variations,
he is able too to create in progress,
algorithm by algorithm,
a representation of his own idea able to communicate his vision of life.
With a generative approach, we can manage easily the complexity of the creative process.
Because we can go ahead step by step in creating and controling our artwork.
We don't need to strain our creativity in representing a whole complex system only with a single creative act.
We know that we cannot represent a whole complex system in only one step.
This normally happens in all artist artworks,
in architecture, in design, in visual art and in music.
But instead of re-designing each time the same logical sequences for progressively increasing the complexity and quality of our artwork,
we can use the previously-designed transformation rules.
The peculiarity of algorithms is to represent a transformation.
By using these our own tools, we can easily, and in a reduced time, arrive to a comparable quality by reusing in different contexts the rules that we have already performed.
But we must clarify that we can also use other tools different from algorithms because, following a different field like mechanical or chemical fields, we can create logical dynamic
sequences with the same structure of the algorithms."

All sounds made with modular synth, use only one module as sound source : Mutable Instruments Plaits in VCV Rack. To create chord, kick, snare, and percussions. Live recordings.
Approach in minimalist direction, truth of the materials, no effects, and all about between free improv, live / real time, semi-generative, and algorithm.
