ULAMIZER II : Cellular Automata Music Module

Since the early experiments by contemporary composers such as Iannis Xenakis, interest in the use of Cellular Automata in music has only increased. ULAMIZER II is the second prototype of a Cellular Automata (CA) music module, designed to be an independent part-time project of the Noyzelab studio environment for both analogue modular and MIDI synthesizers. It is designed from a musicians perspective on CA, using fundamentally new techniques resulting from Noyzelab's many years of research in this field.

Complex systems such as CA produce a myriad of pattern from rule-based interactions of simple cells. CA are capable of producing more patterns than can possibly be observed by a single human in one lifetime. CA have a long distinguished history in computer science, from its foundation to their present day influence in the field of Artificial Life and numerous other disciplines (genetics, digital biology, digital physics, virology, self organising systems).
