Alda: A Music Programming Language Built With Clojure


May 24, 2016


I gave this talk about Alda a few months ago as part of Clojure Remote, the world’s first remote-only Clojure conference.

This talk serves as a quick introduction to music programming languages and the philosophy that led me to create Alda. I talk a little bit about what Alda is and a few of the things you can do with it, but a large part of my talk focuses on why Clojure proved to be the perfect language for building something like Alda.

The conference was a blast - I was honored to be asked to give a talk, but even happier to attend and watch all the other awesome talks! I’m looking forward to seeing what kind of awesomeness Clojure Remote 2017 will bring.
