2012, the year we still could run Java applets inside our browsers.

or not, I'm behind a corporate firewall and it doesn't start (although we're a 99% java company :-) )

I think you're in agreement! In 2012 you could run Java in the browser. Not so much in 2018.

Also worth mentioning Matthew Skala's "Black Swan Suite", another set of music generated from quasiperiodic tilings. He has a nice writeup explaining how it works.


I’ve been working on a daw that integrares done of these ideas to make you more productive. https://www.ngrid.io

Could someone with Java post what produces somewhere, eg. transfer.sh

The linked pieces by John Baez (http://math.ucr.edu/home/baez/music/quasimusic/) are mp3s, so they at least are easy to play.
