This music is generated by a single cellular automaton: Rule 109 from A New Kind of Science by Stephen Wolfram. It explores evolutions of the Rule under various initial conditions. Superimposition of the resulting sound structures vary from simple, static layers to repetitive modules and random distribution of sounds. The piece begins with a simple melodic material slowly growing from the texture of the Rule and, at the end, revealing a dance character of sound. Video for this piece is available on the videos page.
