Online generative music … generator


The WolframTones algorithmic composition generator creates a new multi-instrument sequence with every click –

WolframTones works by taking simple programs from Wolfram’s computational universe, and using music theory and Mathematica algorithms to render them as music.

Includes options for style, instrumentation, pitch and time controls – you can even email each piece as a MIDI file

  1. It’s nice to see that Wolfram’s egomania extends to claiming ownership of the computational universe but not so far as to deny precedent for algorithmic composition of music. I also enjoyed the declaration in the FAQ that CAs are a generalization of mathematics. Yikes.

    Just in case there’s anyone out there who is laboring under the impression that Wolfram is the next Newton (in addition to being the next Beethoven, apparently), please read some reviews of A New Kind of Science by people who actually know the subject (i.e. not journalists). Cosma Shalizi’s is particular harsh, though that’s not to say it’s overly so.
