Well, I gave it a shot, using radium, zynaddsubfx and jack-rack. I don't
usually do this kind of music, and my version of zynaddsubfx is a bit old.
Anyway. :-) :


The brown line in radium is tempo, and the green line is connected to
the cutoff frequency in the butterworth filter in jack-rack. Its very
easy to set up, but I had no idea about effects or sounds or anything, so
I spent some time though. The notes are fairly random.

And here is the sound:
