Musical DNA? ♬

Well, there we have it.  David Cope, a composer and professor at UCSC, wrote a computer program that can imitate the musical DNA of great artists; His program, named EMI (Experiments in Musical Intelligence),deconstructs the works of great composers, finding patterns within their compositions, and then creates brand new compositions. 

Life is amazing.  We have worshiped dead composers and musicians, but will we enjoy their ghostly binary renditions, you decide.
