Evoletronica: Survival of the Funkiest

The blog for the Journal of Genetic Programming and Evolvable Machines (GPEMjournal) reports on a new website which uses genetic programming and human fitness assessment to 'breed electronic music.' The Evolectronica website streams loops of audio which are voted on by site visitors. Loops which receive the most votes 'reproduce' and 'baby loops' are created. The website is also something of a social community, with members posting their comments and competing for the Hall of Fame. It takes a little work to get set up to listen to audio, but once you do you will be fascinated by the evolving sounds.
