How it Works

The algorithms for Muse-O-Matic are written in KeyKit, a programming language language designed specifically for manipulating MIDI data, written by Tim Thompson. The algorithms are completely deterministic - enter the same word and you'll get the same music. In algorithm A, longer words produce longer music. In algorithm B, the music is always the same length.

You can look at the source code for the algorithms.
