HFG (Hierarchical Form Generator). Interactive language for improvisation based on a partial model of perception used to parse musical inputs and re–map them onto a performing input device along with parametric shape transformation routines, written in HMSL, developed in the early 1990's.
HMSL Compositions. A large library of software tools for various compositions and algorithmic music projects written in HMSL, 1980's through 1990's.
