As a way to get to know the non-Pd Organelle system a little better, I ported the generative piece “AWK Music” (by Kyle Keen, not me) to the Organelle. This beautiful and meditative piece uses a standard Posix utility —
awk — in a surprising and delightful way.
This is not a translation of the piece to Pd. It uses the original AWK code, running it with
awk per se on the Organelle. The resulting patch is just a couple of shell scripts.
The hardest part of this was getting the patch to heed the Organelle patch lifecycle.
