Geeky academic approach to music

Right up my alley! :D

I found this graphical, generative compositional tool yesterday. Quite fun to play around with. check it out at: http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~cema/nodal/

Thanks, just what I've been looking for. Took me about an hour to download and figure out the basics and how to use with Operator. I'd be interested in hearing what people come up with.
It works fine on Mac OS X 10.3.9 by the way.
Apple iMac (OSX 10.5.2). Ableton Live 5.2.2 with Operator.

one thing, undo only seems to affect values in the node editor, and not positioning on the grid. boy i can already see the possiblities for me :) :D :lol:
