This is amazing.

Amazing because of an algorithm and instruments (probably MIDI), it generates rhythmic "music" with beats and tempo.

Listeners may be pleased to hear "virgin" tunes, as claimed.

This may be useful to play in public, in cafe or arts galleries, etc. context doing away with music copyrights.

What I wish for:
- selectable tempo, algorithms for slow, hot, fast pace, etc. genres of music.

Thank you to the creators for this.
[Version 3.3]
