I'm interested in computer generated music. Additionally, the FINRA challenge provided a motivation to combine financial information and music.
What it does
Key based on first letter of stock symbol Overall trend is down -> key is minor Overall trend up -> key is major Day to day change is negative -> moves to minor chord Day to day change is positive -> moves to major chord Larger changes typically result in stronger progressions, i.e. movement by fifths and fourths vs. seconds and thirds or to diminshed vs minor seconds and thirds Volume is proportional to the relative trading volume of the day Can change how much data you want to hear with length parameter Can change temp with quarter note parameter
