Generative Systems: Their use in games and music

This is a fairly long talk given by Brian Eno (a musician) and the creator of SimCity.  They are talking about writing algorithms on computers which will dynamically generate a piece of music or a game experience in real time.

The format of their talk is very free-form, and they move off into some very, very interesting intellectual conversation.  Some of the talk is rather slow, but listen to the entire thing.  It is very worth it.
