Sheldon's Algorithm

The primary idea Tales From Space And Two-Times comes from the musicalization of the work Foundation by Issac Asimov. The generation of music in the case of the Foundation will not follow the usual courses, but will be carried out using AI / Text Analysis software made expressly for this project. Sheldon's Algorithm is the result of this investigation. The song contains also (at the beginning and the end of the piece) a small fragment of Asimov talk into "The Open Mind" (1988)

The project is developed in Python and Haskell and combines the NLTK "Natural Language Toolkit" parsing library with a free/open source sound generation software Tydal Cycles, using SuperCollider, another open-source software, for synthesis and I/O.
