Eutérpê Melōidía is a generative music system based in Cellular Automata. With Eutérpê Melōidía you can explore the Cellular Automata universe by means of it graphical and musical evolution.
Eutérpê Melōidía allow you to export your music to pdf, as a music sheet, or to midi, as an audio file. Also it provided a framework for developing your own Cellular Automata, therefore it's a fantastic learning support.
This project uses a Cellular Automata Simulation library developed by my ow (CAlib) in order to compute the evolution of a wide range of CA. In the other hand it uses JFugue to convert CA state configurations into musical events. JFugue is an Open Source Java API for Music Programming.
