Here are some algorithmic random music examples in MP3 format. All examples have been created by letting SoundHelix remote-control a MIDI software synthesizer in real-time with SoundHelix' built-in MIDI sequencer, while recording this with Audacity and converting the result to MP3 format using the Lame MP3 Encoder. Note that all songs with the same record date have been created with an identical SoundHelix XML file using different random seeds.
You need Flash to use the inline MP3 player, otherwise just click on or download the MP3s to play them.
You may use these audio examples in any way you like, but you must give credit to SoundHelix and the artist of the respective song.

The examples 1 to 11 are the same that can be found on YouTube, but in a much better quality here. For song 8, some patterns are fixed (non-random). Here, the chords, the initial bass and the melody were "hard-coded" into the XML file to match the C64 title song of the game Spy vs. Spy 1 (compare with this video).
