piston.scd is a simple SuperCollider startup file to configure audio routing and load project samples.

piston.tidal is the full Piston composition for Tidal Cycles.

samples.csv contains sample attributions. All samples are available in samples/ directory.


The main piston.tidal reflects the original composition, and includes 'initial states' of the various patterns used with notes on what should be changed and when. New patterns are prefaced with a comment like -- @something declaring its 'key' for reference.

In the snippets/ directory are yasnippet-compatible snippet files reflecting these references, and additionally a plpsetup snippet (which contains the project setup) and a pistonlp snippet that provides a convenient list of all project snippets.

For easy loading and use in emacs Tidal, copy or symlink the snippets into a haskell-mode major group in one of your snippet folders.
