Welcome to Gwion
gwion is a strongly timed programming language for making music.
It is strongly influenced by chuck, but adds a bunch of high-level features: templating, first-class functions and more.
It aims to be simple, small, fast, extendable and embeddable.
gwion was originally designed and created by Jérémie Astor. He is a musician, who made it to assist in his shows/compositions.
We are currently looking for contributions, you can learn how to make some here.
