From the release notes: Computer Experiments Volume One is a recording of three different executions of a microcomputer self-composing program. The program, called "Pink Tunes", was written by John Simonton of PAiA Electronics Inc, and is an application of the stochastic process to electronic music. In simple terms, the computer is given a narrowed field of notes, durations, harmonies and the like from the total spectrum of all possibilites. The composer sets all of the musical ground rules, but then lets the computer combine and "compose" the musical elements in constantly varying ways according to stochastic, or controlled randomness structures.
