About the "music created by muO" part: muO is best seen as an ecosystem 
of reified musical concepts and representations, that requires from its 
end-user that he actually understands what he is doing and what kind of 
data he is processing, and how.

As far as composition is concerned, it's up to the composer to do the 
work. The software only (tremendously) helps.

The screencast here only illustrates the composition by projection 
paradigm; it shows a musical phrase being sculpted and constantly 
changing. Well at most times that "musical" phrase would just sound awful !

So, muO does not create music per se. Of course an interactive toy for 
fast and easy music making could be built using muO; as such it would be 
a kind of composition in itself.
