Some of you might know scientist Stephen Wolfram, who wrote A New Kind of Science. From his Mathematica algorithms, there is a site that creates random tones from various types of music styles, which you can download for your cellphone. Check it out here.

WolframTones works by taking simple programs from Wolfram's computational universe, and using music theory and Mathematica algorithms to render them as music. Each program in effect defines a virtual world, with its own special story--and WolframTones captures it as a musical composition.
