I have been writing programs that perform algorithmic music composition since about 1980; this is a sample of some of that work (excerpted from a program written in 1986) for your amusement and possibly edification.

When you click on either of the MIDI buttons below, a small suite of programs will compose some generic boogie-woogie (of the R 'n' R variety) and express the result as MIDI data. If you have a MIDI synthesizer (or two, or three) attached to your computer, or if you have a MIDI plug-in (like Quicktime Instruments) on your web browser, you can play them back.

Okay, so compose something for me!

(not for the faint of heart . . .)
