Rettberg on After Parthenope

Thursday 17 March 2011, 9:21 pm   /////  

If you’re interested in story generation or Processing, do check out Scott Rettberg’s new screencast describing the process he undertook in writing and programming After Parthenope. He goes through the nuts and bolts of the piece and how it rolls out language using a hand-crafted trigram model; he also explains some of the pleasures of authoring a system like this.


  1. Nice, I haven’t seen someone do generative textual stuff in Processing yet. (Haven’t looked super hard, but still.) I will check this out.

    (Btw, the second link has a couple of extra “”‘s in the URL.)
