I attended the latest Google Hackathon in Montreal. Together, with Maxime Chevalier, we spent the day working on a little project called EvoTune. Simply told, it’s a music generator that uses user votes to measure which generated tunes rank above the rest. With the power of Genetic Algorithms, the low-ranking tunes are dropped from the app and new tunes are added through the process of marriage and mutation of the top-ranking tracks.

I’m glad to say that our project was one of the four winners of the event.

Give it a look and vote.
