MutaSynth is an interactive evolutionary music generator. The user listens to sounds generated by the system and chooses their favourites. MutaSynth responds by evolving new sounds based on the user’s preferences.
With MutaSynth, ‘widely different music can be created without knowing anything about the underlying sound engines or the different synthesis and triggering techniques used. Actually, the user is controlling about 360 synthesis and pattern generation parameters at the same time, without even knowing it.’
