More Evidence That Skynet is Taking Over Music: Supercomputer Releases a Debut Album

Over the weekend, I posted this video featuring a bunch of robots doing a very credible version of Motorhead’s “Ace of Spade.”  Now there’s this story about a supercomputer that created a classical music piece in less than a second.

The composer’s name is Iamus, a collection of circuitry at the University of Malaga in Spain.  This track is one of 10 compositions that appear on Iamus’ self-titled debut album.  As you listen to this piece called “Nasciturus,” read the entire story at io9.
