ProcJam – v0.01 effort

Ok so a late decision to enter procjam 2015, and here is my first attempt at producing a PCG generated song. Its about 95% PCG at the moment. I am using Joy Division as my base text resource and have had some great tutorials to work through that gave me a good start:

Here’s the first effort – please note that there has been some editing (all stated by the use of{ } and the text inside) and comma’s also inserted:

THIS WAS CREATED BY A C# PROGRAM – WITH A LOT OF HELP FROM IAN CURTIS (RIP), BERNARD SUMNER, PETER HOOK AND STEPHEN MORRIS

FOOTSTEPS

me waiting for something more, as the territories marked

no matter how hard it end where will it

end, where will burn one who goaded you to

give you, you i tried to get to the

power, it’s creeping up just second nature it’s just

second nature it’s just to feel it end, where

will it end where will it end where will

it end where will it end where will it

[CHORUS]

end these are closed, i can do you see

there i can see all true realities, up slowly

that keep your throats wasted, our respect runs so

plain to get to you, i travelled far and step

outside, an angry voice and bent on water run

through fire can’t take much can’t take much can’t

take, good taste of speed, a taste of waste

their eyes tears in a struggle between right {“when”:DELETED}

[CHORUS]

we were young directionless, so plain to you see

there i, did you forget saints with your man

traps with habits of waste their eyes tears, as

the blood on their bodies made a request well

out of the room the one who cried we’ll

share a changeling to watch admire the centre of

sadness for the pleasure, oh i’ve seen the blame

CHORUS:

with no longer the footsteps i’m,

not afraid anymore i’ve seen blood in lime,

changing our time hoping for something

more as the first light starts to sing

fine only stare in the start

of the past stand tall and apart
