I would like to learn more about how to visualize the patterns created in tidal c.

Could somebody point me to a tutorial that explains how to execute the code to create visual representations of a pattern as seen in the following article.

short-uncomplete answer:
i was wondering the same thing and I was told about Tidal-vis ( | ) but haven't tried it yet, so I can't really help you yet.

Hope this (sort of) helps

Thanks a lot!

So far I have tried to install the Tidal-vis package, but got this message:

(..) Lightloop:~ MrPhlux$ cabal install tidal-vis Resolving dependencies... cabal: Could not resolve dependencies: trying: tidal-vis-0.1.8 (user goal) next goal: cairo (dependency of tidal-vis-0.1.8) rejecting: cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-, cairo-0.12.4, cairo-, cairo-0.12.3, cairo-0.12.2, cairo-0.12.1, cairo-0.12.0, cairo-0.11.1, cairo-0.11.0 (conflict: requires pkg-config package cairo>=1.2.0, not found in the pkg-config database) Dependency tree exhaustively searched. (...)

My guess is that I have to install the cairo 1.2.0. Will do some research how to accomplish that. :)

Yes tidal-vis is what you want.. The cairo dependency is a little bit fiddly to install. A couple of tips for Linux (or probablymac os) users:

Make sure cabal is up to date: cabal install cabal

It involves installing some commandline tools via cabal. To use them, you'll need to run the following (or put this in your .bashrc and re-login):


Then cabal install happy alex

You'll need gtk2hs, some install instructions for different platforms here:

Hope that helps! There's a bit of info about how to actually use it here:
