Conway’s game of music

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 19, 2011

Otomata is a generative sequencer…it play music in a loop determined by the motions of cells like those in Conway’s Game of Life. Fun stuff.

This set of rules produces chaotic results in some settings, therefore you can end up with never repeating, gradually evolving sequences. Go add some cells, change their orientation by clicking on them, and press play, experiment, have fun.
