An artificial world of coevolving communicating agents has been constructed. The behavior of the agents is described in terms of a simple genetic programming framework, which allows the evolution of foraging behavior and movement in order to reproduce, as well as sonic communication. The sound of the entire world is used as musical raw material. Musically interesting and useful structures are found to emerge.
