A downloadable tool for Windows
A small "proof of concept" that lets you generate music with Conway's Game of Life. Each cell plays a different note on a C major scale, based on its x + y coordinates.
Use the mouse to select cells. Press space to activate them. Use the left and right arrow keys to change the instrument.
This program can get pretty loud, so make sure your volume isn't turned up too high (especially if you use headphones).
2/21/17: Updated with a larger grid, pause+mute buttons, and an option to change tempo.
