What is Designing Music?
Designing Music is a research project to develop a methodology for
Computer Aided Composition, based on parallels between Music
and Plastic Arts.
How is Designing Music done?
Through DM-D. This is a software enviroment for computer assisted
composition, developed to implement Designing Music. It is free, and
you can download it here.
What can I do with DM-D?
Although it is oriented to Generative Music paradigm,
DM-D languaje is powerful and flexible enough even to imitate different
music styles, through simple programming. So, you can use it to get
a quick approach to Algorithmic Composition or to create complex
musical sequences from only a few orders.
Is it difficult to learn?
No, compared to other similar systems, it is really easy. At this
site you will find Tutorials, documentation and many examples to
learn it in a few hours.

Designing Music and DM-D are creations of composer Luis Robles.
Here you have links to his website and contact
Has been any musical piece composed
with this system?
Yes, Here you will find brief information and recordings of four different
works composed with DM-D. Didactic examples are also included, in which
several styles are imitated through Designing Music.
Are Designing Music and DM-D
Of course, they are. Although some parts of DM-D code are
inspired on CSound code. It is included more information about
