Clarence Barlow's indispensability function for Max/MSP

Dispenser is an abstraction for Max/MSP which implements Clarence Barlow's principle of the indispensability of a pulse in a given meter. This abstraction can be used to generate a multitude of rhythms based on priorities derived from indispensability values. Barlow used this principle in many of his compositions, the notorious piano piece Çogluotobüsisletmesi among them. The theory behind this is described in his article "Two Essays on Theory" (Computer Music Journal, 11, 44-60).
