Absolutely loved this talk by Jan Krutisch at JSConf EU 2013 and I'm super bummed I didn't get to see it live: Jan Krutisch: JavaScript Patterns For Contemporary Dance Music -- JSConf EU 2013 If anything check the beginning for the most badass opening of a conference talk ever.
This may be the first time with anything music-making-related that I'd say that this is something that I might actually be able to do myself. Personally I'm also suffering from the "flute playing in elementary school" trauma that Jan alludes to. Could be that that is a northern German thing.
Using procedural code to make music using stuff like mod operators to hit the right beats and Math.sin to bring in some variation together with realtime feedback definitely seems super accessible to me.
CC Lasse Wassermann who will likely enjoy this as well.
