This makes for an interesting experiment... and I have to admit that I'm a bit curious about the method used for interpreting an image in this way.

To be completely honest, this doesn't sound all that much different to me than an algorithm that takes random numbers as input.

Well, the arrangement could be said to have a Shostakovich feel. Still, it sounds quite random. I didn't listen to the whole thing.

This is based on at least two presumptions: that
1) music creation has anything to do with notes and/or sounds
2) the same numbers that can reproduce an image can also produce music.

Some people feel the need to somehow fill their incapacity to write music, so they use whatever devices they consider appropriate, and whatever comes out, they call it - music.

What would we call the sound of a traffic jam then, where everyone is honking their horns? Each horn has a pitch, many of which are different. They play at different times and even develop rhythms sometimes. There can also be percussive sounds and even vocals. I'll bet some people would call this "music" too.

Music of the great Charles Ives, I guess. He was not so predictable as John Williams. How bad!
