This is easily the coolest thing I’ve come across on the internet all week. WolframTones: An Experiment in a New Kind of Music generates ringtones for mobile phones using the computational algorithms laid out in Stephen Wolfram’s A New Kind of Science. Various musical styles are available, and each composition is generated at random every time a user clicks on a button. Some of the results are just a cacophony of noise, but many are quite good. And the idea is just really cool.
Time to come up for air.
Well, that was a difficult week at work. Whew. If I still drank, now would be a great time to get absolutely wasted. But I don’t, so I guess I’ll go not stare a computer screen for a while. Maybe take a nap, definitely read a book. Decompress.
