Abstract

A system for automatically generating sound sequences, for example a generative music system, has a server which communicates with a plurality of remote clients. The generative music system resides entirely on the server, with control coming from the remote clients (71). In some embodiments, the sounds or music generated at the server may depend upon the collaborative or competitive real time actions of the clients. The system has numerous applications, including mobile phones and multi-user computer games.
