Nasciturus: Classical music composed by a computer in less than a second

This classical piece entitled "Nasciturus" was composed by lamas, a computer cluster in Spain with absolutely no human intervention.

Composer and software consultant Gustavo Diaz-Jerez explains the workings:

"We have taught a computer to write musical scores. Now we can produce modern classical music at the touch of a button. We've just told the computer some very general technical things. We have informed the computer that it is impossible for a pianist to play a 10 note chord with one hand. We only have five fingers on one hand.

"Each composition has a musical core that becomes ever more complex and evolves automatically. It starts with very complex structures inside the computer. It is very different from other computer-generated music. When people hear the phrase they imagine that you can hear the computer playing music. Iamus does something different, it projects the complexity we are growing in the computer into musical structures."

wow innovative, yet kind of spooky
