Granular synthesis is a simple concept with amazing results. If you have any list of object, you could pick from this list and re-organize it to your liking. With audio in the time domain, you can apply this method of sorting amplitude values within a section of a stored recording and get new jumbled results. The essence of this concept could be applied to any array of data and composer / educator Michele Zaccagnini is currently demonstrating this with existing musical score data from Debussy via Max in this tutorial below.

The results of Michele's process are striking. The seemingly new trails of thought from the small slices evoke the similar efforts of granular synthesis’ audio versions à la Carl Stone. What makes this so distinct from the raw timbres of traditionally recorded Debussy is that the MIDI data is sorted, resulting in a highly workable foundation for playing back most digital instruments with this sushi’d classical music information. Tiny grains build large pyramids.
