Capturing Cancer with Music

Model Cancer Growth in Music

Hyena is a program for simulating tumor growth in a musicXML encoded song.
MusicXML files can be downloaded from musescore.com and can be viewed using musescore or Flat.
A comprehensive list of software for reading musicXML files can be found at musicxml.com/software/.


Hyena is devoped using Google Chrome. If you encounter any issues while using another borwser, please try to run the program with Chrome.


Either select one of the following sample files (hold your cursor over the file name for a description):

Or download a musicXML file from OpenScore or another site in this list: musicxml.com/music-in-musicxml/
And upload your file here:

Please note that invalid musicxml files will not be read by the program. Additionally, some musicxml files, particularly very complicated files or those with errors, may not produce a valid output file after running the simulation. This is a known bug that we are working on.
