Algorithmic Music Composition with computers (in real and non-real time) has had many approaches. It can be viewed from different points of view: scientific, technological, artistic or philosophical. In this paper the author introduces three projects developed between 1990 and 2000 in Havana, during his time as a professor, researcher and composer at the University of Arts of Cuba. He also exposes some philosophical reflections on algorithmic music systems, derived from his work at Havana and his current research in the Music Technology Group of the Universitat Pompeu Fabra.
