Links - Computer mixed and filtered Christmas algorhythms

I find the weirdest stuff on the web while looking for something else.

Brian Whitman is an MIT professor, and maker of Eigenradio, which "plays only the most important frequencies, only the beats with the highest entropy." Brian has released a happy holiday album automatically derived from the principal components of "all Christmas music." Description, from the site: "This season, as a present to friends worldwide, our system listened to as much Christmas music as it could handle. When it was done it synthesized these sixteen new timeless classics."

It's kind if a haunting, Philip Glass-like series of... it's not even melodies, really, but sounds a lot like the music they composed for 2001: A Space Oddessy. I bet it's great on certain types of recreational pharmecuticals.
