I am helping a student with their JavaScript learning journey and I proposed they build a game of life in JavaScript. This is the example that I built as a demonstration.

I always wanted to have "Stayin' alive" by the Bee Gees playing in the background. Hence, I built it so that when you play start, a midi version of the song will start playing.

Since it uses a canvas, I am not quite sure how to make it responsive, so at the moment I can only assure it will work correctly on screens bigger than phones.
