The entire musical score for the educational game Sim Cell was produced using a generative music system utilizing the open source visual programming language Pure Data (PD). When combined with synthesis, generative music allows for the creation of rich and highly adaptive compositions utilizing a small amount of storage space.

The details of the system are explored and described to help aid others wishing to utilize generative music systems in their own titles.
