Generative.fm is an open source platform for playing generative music in the browser. It's a collection of systems which generate pieces of music which neither end nor repeat. The site currently features systems which generate endless ambient, minimal music. The site is completely free for everyone and doesn't feature advertising.

I am the creator and maintainer of the site and the music systems featured on it. Patrons get to influence new features on the site as well as receive updates about what I'm working on. Mostly, support through Patreon is a way for generous supporters to help with hosting costs and sustain my attention to the project. In addition to generative.fm, I occasionally work on other projects and write on Medium, and I share updates about those things with patrons too.

Work status for generative.fm can be tracked via the site's project board on Github.
