London Symphony Orchestra to perform music made by computer Iamus

Iamus computer at University of Malaga makes music on its own.
While computers have been used for years to make music, one developed by the University of Málaga composes music all on its own, and the orchestra wants to perform it.
London - The Iamus software was developed at the University of Málaga, Spain and requires no human intervention when making music.
The Daily Telegraph says that the music is actually pretty good, and the London Symphony Orchestra is happy to perform it.
A CD will be released in September with the London Symphony Orchestra, as well as other known orchestras, performing the computer-generated music.
Apparently Gustavo Diaz-Jerez, who is a pianist from the music conservatory in San Sebastian, will be playing piano on the collection. He told reporters that the London Symphony Orchestra were "surprised" by the quality of what they were being asked to play.
Lennox Mackenzie, chairman of the London Symphony Orchestra said that at first the music was "too dense", but that "by the end of it, I thought it was quite epic."
The leading developer behind Iamus, Francisco Vico, told The Daily Telegraph, that when people first hear Iamus music, most can hardly believe that a computer program has created it.
The video above features a full Iamus composition, titled "Hello World!", which was first played in October 2011 with violin, clarinet and piano.

Not bad...but, I must confess that it's a bit too modern for me. As far as piano music, I am still stuck around the first half of the XIX Century with Chopin's Nocturnes. However, I hope that I may slowly progress towards Franz Liszt's Études...
