Machine Generated Music
Do you want to use some music for a video clip or some classroom activity, but you want to avoid using a recognizable piece? Why don't you try "WolframTones". According to the site, "WolframTones works by
taking simple programs from Wolfram's computational universe, and
using music theory and Mathematica algorithms to render them as
music." Sometimes a tune will sound familiar, but rest assured that each tune is unique. You can adjust most of the parameters: tempo, key, mode, genre. Make it your own!
