[UPDATE 16 September 2010 - link changed]

Particularity is an open source program for generating sounds and visuals. I am honoured that it has been awarded joint first place in the LoMus 2010 competition.

This program is for Mac OS X 10.4 and above, and has been tested on 10.4.11 and briefly 10.5. It is based on SuperCollider using its standalone capacity. This is the initial release and further refinements should be expected.

Particularity, along with a documentation PDF and the source code can be downloaded here.

Any queries regarding this program should be addressed to:

Please do not address queries about Particularity to any other address, or use this address for other purposes! Unfortunately in-depth correspondence may not be possible for the next few weeks, however any bug reports or suggestions will be received with interest and gratitude.


  1. thanks I'll definitely try it out ... it looks very interesting

  2. 1 minute in: Managed to get a saw wave going.
    2 minutes in: Managed to make the saw wave sound alien.
    5 minutes in: Made a triangle dance about.
    10 minutes in: Read the manual, started doing something interesting.

    This is oddly entertaining to mess about with.

  3. i was feeling a bit depressed but have a mess around with this really cheered me up.
