PD Patch – fiddle and lbyl

For this assignment, I randomly selected a pitch to pluck based on the input pitch. Then I recorded a feedback session, where I injected the last plucked pitch back into fiddle. Given a preliminary note, the patch then composes the rest itself. It took some work to get the randomized plucks to give long streams of composition, but now it goes—as far as I can tell—forever once it has begun.
