Using an evolutionary algorithm and the ears of you the general public, we’ve been evolving a four bar loop that started out as pretty dismal primordial auditory soup and now after >27k ratings and 200 generations is sounding pretty good. Given that the only ingredients are sine waves, we’re impressed. We got some coverage in the New Scientist CultureLab blog but now things have gone quiet and we’d really appreciate some Slashdotter idle time. We recently upped the maximum ‘genome size’ and we think that the music is already benefiting from the change.”
