Abstract

The author describes the theory, design, implementation and performance of his computer-music piece "Lottery." "Lottery" is based on a social model that promotes responsible resource sharing. Performers are temporary members of an evolving microsociety, the behavior of which is closely correlated to audible change. The ideas in "Lottery" were derived from the work of evolutionary biologist Garrett Hardin and computer scientist/theorist Douglas R. Hofstadter.
