Randomness is one of the main reasons I started programming my own  

While it was the imp of the perverse that made me choose that Marley  
bit at BEMF - I often use the many random functions in Kenaxis to  
surprise myself. You can setup files from a chosen folder to play in  
a random order at random times, hit one key and your files change  
randomly, hit another key and all of your pitch and loop points  
change randomly. You can also setup random processes so that things  
are constantly changing on you in random but controlled ways.

Taming randomness and making it musical is one of my favorite  
undertakings. For me it is a way to vary the static loop based  
approach into something a bit more exciting - in particular when  
using prerecorded sound files.
