Abstract: Algorithmic Composition (AC) is a well-known technic for creating music by using computers, either to assist the human composition process or to automatically generate a musical piece. Such algorithms go from stochastic processes to evolutionary systems. A particular form of AC deals with deriving music from some existing source of data, such as numbers, text, paintings. I will present some ways of deriving a music from Smalltalk code (methods, classes, projects, etc.), for which I've developed a basic composition framework, using Bee Smalltalk.

Bio: I live in Buenos Aires, Argentina. I have been devoted to Smalltalk for more than 10 years. I have used it and enjoyed it throughout my entire professional career. I am currently working at Caesar Systems, an international company of software development for the oil & gas industry.
