Really, really nice the way you got them to behave like gears. It produces very cool random ear-cookies. Thanks for sharing.

Totally addictive. I am hooked.

Nice. I have been able to get them to do this by getting one going and then causing it to collide with another going the opposite direction on the same track.


Check out this heavy bass set up...

earslap.com...





Also wanted to show a variation on the heavy bass setup that I like a lot. It seems to be the one so far that creates the most 'solos' from the cells that I have been able to devise

And the inverse of the above...

That first one's pretty kickin! I'm finding I really like the simple beats. Here's another one I'm pretty happy with,

and,

That last one is incredible. I left it running in the background while doing some paperwork. I don't think it ever looped. Amazing! Honestly I didn't expect I'd like procedural music so much that I'd continue to listen to it, but you guys beat my expectations.
Big thumbs up!

For people wanting to record their creation to MP3/WAV etc you can just download audacity and then follow these guides (Win + Linux).

And another ... www.earslap.com... . Too good!

So .....check out these 3 notes that collided, and bounce back and forth rapid, I honestly and still trying to figure all that out.

earslap.com...
it happens when the two notes make it to the bottom. 12s

Have you listened to these playing at the same time, i accidentally left one window open and then clicked your next link and i have listening for about 10 minutes now


Cant wait to hear more stuff off this thread and see how this program evolves

P.S i think i just lucked out and got good timing when i started the next selection...

That was amazing. The way it drops beats randomly is really nice. Could you post the set up for this one? If you set it up and do a screen capture before you start it we can see the starting position for the blocks. Thanks.

This was an interesting activity. Thank you, OP

This is amazing! Hours of fun. But from a music producers point of view which I am, I don't really like the idea of machines making music

After reading your comment I couldn't help but think, "I, for one, welcome our new musical robot overlords."


Waiting around for Portal 2 to unlock ( www.aperturescience.com... ), I've been toying with more bass-oriented configurations. This one's got a good tune to it:

My first post ever, that's really cool tech!!! Also it's nice to meet another Majesty fan. I'm really big into procedural content. Wikipedia's got a great list of games with generative technology ... en.wikipedia.org... . I'll report back when I make a song worthy of listening to.

Call me crazy but I am sure that I heard some riffs by the band Tool in that one video as the blocks started off

how can you mention cellular automata and not mention rule 110?
Rule 110



There are 4 classes of cellular automata.
class 1 - produces basic checkerboard patterns
class 2 - produces arbitrarily spaces streaks
class 3 - starts to become more interesting as recognizable features such as triangles appear in the pattern in random order
class 4 - the most famous example being Rule 110. This one however produced the "aha experience". and resulted in wolfram dedicating over a decade to this topic. Class 4 rules produce surprisingly complex patterns that do not repeat themselves. We see in them many different types of artifacts however the pattern is neither regular nor completely random; it appears to have some order but is never predictable.



Why is this important? Keep in mind we began with the simplest starting point: a single black cell. the process involves repetitive application of a very simple rule. From such a basic rule we see complex and interesting features that shows some order and apparent intelligence.


110 in binary=
01101110

Great addition.
If I remember correctly a lot of Wolfram's ideas on a computable theory of everything were a product of his work with cellular automata.
