algorithmic compositions for the vuvuzela

Here are some ideas for algorithmic compositions for the instrument of the season, the vuvuzela. These ideas were generated during a lunchtime discussion with Peter Mcilwain.

Mexican wave
Sound a note if somebody to your left is playing a note.

Splitting wave

Sound a note if somebody to either side of you is playing a note.

Sound a note if the ball is at the point on the pitch nearest to you.

Sound a note at an intensity proportional to the distance of the ball from you.

Team kicker

Sound a note if a player on the team you support kicks the ball.

Sound a note if any player kicks the ball.


Sound a note whenever you feel like it.

We take no responsibility for the din that will ensue!
