IOLET: Music from the World of Anathem
According to Al Billings, who received an advanced reader copy of Anathem, Neal Stephenson's upcoming new novel, the book came with a CD of seven musical tracks with titles like "Proof Using Finite Projective Geometry" and "Sixteen Color Prime Generating Automation." Writes Al:
[F]rankly, this is some weird shit... The musical styles are all over the map except that they all only use human voices (and occasionally hands).
I wonder if they are algorithmic compositions of some sort. I'm once again anxious to read the next 1,000 page Stephenson novel.
