Introduced to Western culture by the Beatles in their single Norwegian Wood
, the sitar
has featured prominently in North Indian classical music for centuries. Princeton-based computer scientist Ajay Kapur updates the instrument with his ESitar
, an audio and video controller that uses gesture input
(PDF) and machine learning
algorithms to facilitate joining the computer with Ajay in his sitar performance. Undergraduate engineering students at the University of Pennsylvania work from the other direction, building RAVI-bot
, an award-winning
, self-playing robotic sitar
(YouTube) programmed to generate music from classical Raga scales and melodies
all on its own. For those in the Philadelphia area, be sure to check out a live performance of RAVI-bot at the local Klein Art Gallery.

The musician Jem Finer
(formerly of The Pogues) has created a musical composition, The LongPlayer
, that will play, without repetition, for a thousand years (made with SuperCollider
). It is currently playing live at a London lighthouse.
The Dream House
is another example of a generative art piece, in this case one that was set to run for eight years. These are both examples of Generative Art, Art generated by rules.
The GA community is an active one

- A false News Headline generator. And, N-Gen
