This is a sample output of something I've been working on lately. A somewhat intelligent cellular automata system that I developed with some atari2600 style sonification.

Poor figure that you see at the beginning triggers a relatively complex cellular life system(which is based on conway's rules but it's not ahistoric and can switch rules on the fly depending on the situation) and I've done some work to sonify the life with atari2600 sounds. I have no control over the system once it is started, and it dies by itself.

Software used:

Processing connected to SuperCollider via osc_p5 library and the great p5_sc library, and I used the Atari2600 UGen by Fredrik Olofsson, all custom software.

It is actually in stereo but Youtube bastardizes the content by converting everything to mono. If anyone is interested in the original, i can send links.
