Oh, sure. You're jaded. You're not even impressed by the sheer bizarreness of a MIDI sequencer run entirely by hamsters. But look closer: to make the music sound as musical as this,
Cornell student Levy Lorenzo designed a sophisticated set of algorithms
governing rhythmic durations and note choice, so this is really a
generative algorithmic composition with hamster manipulation. Hamsters
are divided by task: one does notes, one rhythm.
Wait, back up — the hamsters are playing music!! Look at those hamsters go! (Sorry, couldn't contain myself.) Via Tom at musicthing. (Yup, Tom is back!)
