Exploring generative long music form

I am exploring generative possibilities for long slow music form. I can kind of trace different influences for this: “Ambient”, Eno, Arvo, Nyman, Mertens, Feldman. Generative techniques, Greek modal instrumental and vocal laments, and similar contemplative music traditions.

Dunno where that leads but I am very interested in darker, sorrowful shades of this continuum.

Also, I am not interested in “finished” pieces per se, so I am going to freely iterate these. This one is a four-voice piece. It’s using only 5 minor scale degrees, but not a pentatonic. It’s Supercollider and uses a dark, noisy pad exclusively.
