An Experiment in A New Kind of Music’. It combines the principles in Stephen Wolfram’s book, `A New Kind of Science’ and Mathematica to ‘instantly create unique music’ in many different styles. kind of clunky but pretty cool.

Some of the tunes are catchy, some vaguely familiar, others like nothing on Earth. There are more than a trillion trillion trillion of them, all accessible at the click of a finger.

When you listen to one of the compositions created by WolframTones, an online music resource devised by researchers at Wolfram Research, you are almost certainly the first person ever to hear it.

Click “start now”, and in the next page an option for a type of music.
