In this paper, we describe how we can generate music by simulating moves of artificial ants on a graph where vertices represent notes and edges represent possible transitions between notes. As ants can deposit pheromones on edges, they collectively build a melody which is a sequence of Midi events. Different parameter settings are tested to pro- duce different styles of generated music with several instruments.We also introduce a mechanism that takes into account music files to initialize the pheromone matrix.
