Abstract

We describe two sets of musical applications of the BREVE simulation system. The first adds musical events and interactions to a system of evolving, goal-directed swarms. The second extends 3d cellular automata to respond to musical input and to generate musical output. Although this paper will print in black and white in the proceedings, color versions of the figures, along with links to audio samples and other materials, can be found on-line at http://hampshire.edu/lspector/alife8-music.html.
