Composing starting from physics concepts

One of the pieces I am working on right now is a string quartet based on a universal physics law: the continuous increase of entropy within isolated systems (2nd Law of Thermodynamics).

This piece is being the seed of an initial software prototype that allows me modelling different musical parameters (pitches, dynamics, timbres, rhythms, etc.) according to the particular needs of the piece.

The figure below depicts the pitches distribution along time:


This compositiong will be rehearsed in the near future, so checking if the music results meets the foreseen behaviour will be highly interesting for me in order to modify the software in a proper way.

Stay tuned for further information!
