I'm thinking about music created by generative art and it kind of makes think of this video where James Murphy (of LCD Soundsystem) created music from tennis data:

However, I kind of think this might be different, because a human is involved in selecting the sequences and kind of mixing them together.

Would this still fall under the umbrella of generative art?

Hey Michael,

Yea generative music is totally a thing. One of my favourite examples is disasterpeace.com/blog/january

You can create audio on the web using the Web Audio API. However, there are more specialized tools for this. For example, Ableton, nodalmusic.com/ or supercollider.github.io/

That said, I don't have much experience with this. There is a getting started tutorial on Coding Train: youtube.com/watch?v=Bk8rLzzSink

I did a write up on Sonic Pi for writing music with code. And it can be used for live performances with a file on a loop that is changed in real time.
