It started as a curious project, when live coding enthusiast and Toplap member Dan Stowell started tweeting tiny snippets of musical code using SuperCollider. Pleasantly surprised by the reaction, and "not wanting this stuff to vanish into the ether" he has recently collated the best pieces into a special download for The Wire's online readership...SuperCollider 140 (SourceForge, via @chris_carter_)
Many of these pieces are actually generative, so if you re-run the source code (the track titles) you get a new piece of music.
