Music by computers

The servers are alive with the sound of music. Wolfram Tones takes patterns found out in the computer universe and converts them to completely original musical scores (which still may sound familiar, weirdly enough). Visitors to the site can then tweak styles, instrumentation and pitch (Phyrigian hexatonic, anyone?). Compositions can be saved, e-mailed or downloaded to your cellphone. Via.

Very cool stuff. This could be hooked up to Ableton Live for some MIDI fun.

Not as fun as playing the piano, but fun.

Anyway, the damn thing didn't work on my PC, very irritating.

The hiphop generator is woefully ignorant of the range of rhythmic variations that actually make up hiphip. Other than that, cool.

Almost as fun as a circuit bending casio mod. This is what makes the interweb so great.
