Creating Aleatoric Music



Aleatoric is music in which some element of the composition is left to chance

1) Choose six notes from the piano.
2) Then give each note a number.

3) Then roll a die to start your composition!

4) Each note should have a certain duration
1=semibreve    2=minim   3=crotchet   4=quaver  5=anything  6=rest.

Maybe you can think of other ways of creating aleatoric music? Perhaps flipping a coin, or determined by colours, or even shapes.

Theme from Amelie

Written by Jeunet with Guillaume Laurant, the film is a whimsical depiction of contemporary Parisian life, set in Montmartre. It tells the story of a shy waitress, played by Audrey Tautou, who decides to change the lives of those around her for the better, while struggling with her own isolation.
