access the real-time, hackable web version: www.alestsurko.by/microscale

Created in real-time from random Wikipedia articles, "microscale" is a web-based, generative album. Each Wikipedia article functioning as a step sequencer – where the letters are the sequencer steps and the track titles are regular expressions that switch the steps on and off. The web version is generated in real-time and is also hackable – this means that the regular expressions, samples, tempo and other parameters can be edited or replaced – enabling "microscale" to be used as an instrument and sequencer for the listener’s own music.

"microscale" is available from www.alestsurko.by/microscale, as well as an individually rendered CDR and one-time rendered digital download.
