At the more conceptual digital end, you might be interested in the work of the Centre for Electronic Media Art and related projects looking at biologically inspired approaches to generative processes. A good review of this area is Alan Dorin's 2006, "The Sonic Artificial Ecosystem", here http://www.csse.monash.edu.au/~aland/papers.html
