An old program they should bring back

It wasn't so much a game as it was a facinating simulation of AI. There used
to be a program that let you pick out any number of musical instruments and
the computer would put together a song intelligently using those instruments.
It was a lot of fun to play around with but it was never continued. I believe
Microsoft developed it or at least distributed it. I'd love to see them bring
it back. How about it??? With today's better computers this could be a great
idea.

How long ago was this? I remember something similar many years ago. At first
I thought it was a C64 piece of software, but it may have been right after
when I got a 8088 machine...

Yeah, this was some years back but don't ask me to pin point it. I can only
assume it was a Microsoft offering since I've only owned Windows and Amiga
based computers and I don't think it was an Amiga program. I seem to remember
it being a beta version but that is as far as it got. It sure was facinating
to mess with since it did come up with some good tunes all on it's own. A
great way to play with and experience computer AI.
This would be one of those great programs to offer Vista users since with
today's computers it could really be updated nicely.
