::: Cellular automata and music :::

Take computers, mathematics, and the Java Sound API, add in some Java code,    and you’ve got a recipe for creating some uniquely fascinating music.

IBM Staff Software Engineer Paul Reiners demonstrates how to implement some    basic concepts of algorithmic music composition in the Java language.

He presents code examples and resulting MIDI files generated by the Automatous    Monk program, which uses the open source jMusic framework to compose    music based on mathematical structures called cellular automata.

    1. Yes, the idea is the same but Peep is a mature application.  The ideas presented in the article that I blogged are still in infant state.  When I listened to the MP3 examples of Peep, I could clearly get an aural picture of the network.  This is not true with examples of Cullular Automata listed in the article.
