Poetry Generation Terms with JanusNode
I mentioned this over on netpoetic.com while announcing our poetry collection and I end by proposing a D&D/Lisp-like ludic expression:
(((1d3)(post-,avant-,'pata-)) ((1d6)(computational,digital,procedural,appropriative,stochastic,aleatoric)) ((1d3)(poetic,lyric,verse)) ((1d3)(generation,production,authoring)))
There are currently 6 x 19 x 8 x 5 = 4560 different combinations, ensuring a steady supply of novel terms for the near future. Admittedly some of them are a little redundant, like “computational rhyme computation”, but how can you argue with ‘pata-uncreative metered line generation?
Anyway, this was implemented in the JanusNode generator, the files I wrote are in the usual place, if you already have the older ones the new files are: e_pg1a, e_pg1b, e_pg2, e_pg3, e_pg4 in the “for-BrainFood” directory, and the “Poetry Generation Terms” directory in the “for-TextDNA” directory.
OK, off to do some avant-ludic stanza computation…
