Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC,volume 828)


Nature has always been a constant source of inspiration for mankind. This work proposes to harness what nature has to offer through the sea waves to compose music. In this work, the features of the sea waves as observed from beaches are utilized to generate musical semitones, without the influence of any other human-composed music. The musical strains so generated are hence completely unique and could serve as a significant plug-in for a composer.
