Celluar Noise

Two sonifications for cellular automata: imagined as the score (as in this example), and imagined as the sound — i.e., the wave itself. I imagine the second case would be incredibly noisy but with some really interesting structures. Perhaps a more useful tool would be a cellular filter or cellular instrument: where the filter starts with the input as the initial state and evolves it a fixed number of times to yield the output, or with the instrument where the note being played determines a basic square wave which evolves over the course of the note being played
