Each part (they're ten, one for each instrument) has a n/m chances to be 
triggered every n seconds.

When a part is triggered it starts a metronome of n bps that - at every 
beat - choose a random note from a list (some notes are repeated to have 
more chances to be picked), but each note has also n/m chances to be played.

That's all.

So, part of the copyright of the *improvisation* is owned by those who 
wrote the algorithm for generating random values. :-)  Luckily, I guess 
mine has been written by the gnu folks.

Are you sure the fault is not on your side? My website is hosted by a 
commercial provider. I believe their apache is already configured and in 
fact I can succesfully download an ogg file from my own website using 
firefox and get it recognized as an ogg audio file.

Let me know, otherwise I'll add the line to my home directory .htaccess.
