Proof that music and techno-geekery go together (or, Why Paul Slocum is my hero)

I’ve been a fan of Paul Slocum‘s various projects for several years now, but this takes the cake. From his blog post about a new project:

The program generates house music by progressively calculating the digits of pi and feeding them into an algorithmic music generator that I wrote…

The song is infinitely long and static. Every byte of the audio output is predetermined, even though only a small amount of it has actually been listened to. So you can jump to any measure in the song and it will always play the same music for that measure.

And it gets only more delightfully geeky from there.
