A ROJAK COLLECTION
Rojak is a popular South East Asian dish, a mix of ingredients that, at first sight, seems an awful combination but, in the end, turns out to be quite delicious. The word can also be used as an adjective to describe, as best as I can translate it, a motley collection of things. It's not a positive trait, but it's also not completely negative. My rojak collection is a series of electronic pieces using samples of various objects I come across or field recordings that I make. The works are all created using a variety of algorithmic techniques. For each work, I include both a recording as well as a "score", an annotated version of the code used to generate the music. The annotations are there to help those unfamiliar with code understand better what's going on. If you are completely new to coding, then I recommend reading an essay I wrote specifically for you. It's called An Introduction to Coding in Sonic Pi, and it can be found here. Once you read that, then the scores will make more sense. In the meantime, you can also just listen to the pieces.
