Chess and Music

The ChessBase development team doesn't spend ALL their time working up chess programs to defeat world champions. As noted at the ChessBase site:

"ChessBase has developed a full-fledged music composing program, appropriately named Ludwig. Matthias Wüllenweber appropriately introduced to the general public in the National Art Gallery during the Man vs Machine event – appropriately because the great German composer Ludwig (aha!) Beethoven was born and lived in Bonn."

To read the fascinating article about Ludwig and its similarities to the incredibly strong Fritz chess program, click here.
