The "Real Kecak System" is interactive computer music in which polyrhythms correspond to any combination of real numbers. In this work, it was my main aim to innovate musical form through recursive structures of any irrational numbers. No random numbers or stochastic processes were used in this work, which was based on the quite deterministic laws of mathematics. The real numbers are inftnite; musical forms are inftnite!
