Mutator - Genetic Algorithm Approach to Collaborative Music Creation
This is the original source code for the prototypical beat / groove sequencing application in the publication:
Klügel, Niklas and Lindström, Andreas and Groh, Georg. "A Genetic Algorithm Approach to Collaborative Music Creation on a Multi-Touch Table
Abstract: Multi-touch interfaces provide new opportunities for collaborative music composing. In this report, an approach using genetic algorithms to evolve musical beats in a collaborative setting is presented. A prototype using a multitouch interface is developed and evaluated

Mutator is originally a tabletop application but the framework also allows use with mouse input apart from TUIO and native win7 touch.
checkout and build + sbt publish for each of these
The application only produces midi-data for controlling external instruments, the sequencing is performed in PureData (see additional .pd patch)
