A downloadable tool
A small "proof of concept" that lets you generate music with Conway's Game of Life. Each cell plays a different note based on its x + y coordinates.
Use the mouse to select cells. Press play to activate them. You can change instruments, tempo, musical scales, and cellular automata rules.
This program can get pretty loud, so make sure your volume isn't turned up too high (especially if you use headphones).
2/21/17: Updated with a larger grid, pause+mute buttons, and an option to change tempo.
8/15/18: Added new cellular automata rules (High Life, 34 Life, etc). Added new musical scales. Updated the GUI, added "erase all" button. Changed sounds, now synth is default.
If you like this tool, check out my other music software like NanoTone Synth and consider donating to support new projects. :)
