Can you tell me about some algorithmically developed/edited movies? Or movies that are different every time they're shown?

So, I recently read about whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir
and it sounds pretty neat. It's a film that's generated algorithmically from a bank of clips every time it's shown, with a new soundtrack every time.
I'm also aware of The Boss of it All
which seems to have some kind of computer controlled component, but it's unclear to me what that component is. I think it was more about the filming than the editing.
Anyway, it seems to me these can't be the only two examples of this kind of thing. Are there other movies (or, you know, "video art pieces") that rearrange themselves every time they're shown? Or have sound that changes? Or some component of the filming/editing that was somehow algorithmically determined?
