Love creating music or writing?

Use Wotja (sounds like "wot-jah") to create your own live ambient & adaptive generative music, reflective music & MIDI and 'text-to-music' melodies & music ideas. Generate 'cut-up text' for creative writing, too.

Ever-evolving Wotja is itself the evolution of SSEYO Koan, Noatikl, Mixtikl, Liptikl & Tiklbox. It uses generative techniques we have been crafting for nearly 30 years.

History: Generative Music is a term coined in 1995 by Brian Eno whilst working with SSEYO Koan Pro.

Generative » Reflective Music

'Generative Music' is endless music created by a system 'in the moment' which is why we sometimes also refer to it as inmo music (we also sometimes preface it with 'adaptive' as our IME music engine can respond to external MIDI events).It is generally created with a range of aleatoric / stochastic / algorithmic music techniques (i.e. randomness / chance is at its core). It's enjoyed and used by many for a whole host of reasons including helping to break creative block, developing personal creativity, exploration, creative fun, making relaxing ambient music for sleep and even for live interactive music installations.

'Reflective Music' is the next step forward for Generative Music. By its very nature and with chance at its core, Generative Music has no integral human context or meaning. To address that our Wotja Generative Music app supports use of a Text-to-Music (TTM) technique to generate seed melodies that the music can flow around. The words used to create the melodies can directly key the music with a unique personal context and relevance, making it ideal for reflection, mindfulness and meditation - hence 'Reflective Music'.
