Genres

In the context of generate and test activity, some additional genres are needed. There’s maybe three axes

Axis   Description   Value spectrum
source   cymatics, vibration domain   mechanic, electronic, electro-mechanic
         
process   determinism, predictability, autonomy, closed-loop   deterministic sequence, probabilistic sequence, generative, cybernetic
         
complexity   process output, process residual, aesthetics, perceptual quality   constant, complex, random
         

Another version of that
