We present an algebra whose operations act on musical pieces, and show how this algebra can be used to generate music in a tree-based fashion. Starting from input which is either generated by a regular tree grammar or provided by the user via a digital keyboard, a sequence of tree transducers is applied to generate a tree over the operations provided by the music algebra. The evaluation of this tree yields the musical piece generated.
