The following piece was selected by composer Yiorgos Vassilandonakis out of 7 outputs generated randomly by Harmonic Navigator using a 371-piece corpus of J.S. Bach chorales as input.
The selected output was then cleaned up, arranged, and orchestrated for string orchestra.
The piece is performed below by the College of Charleston Student String Orchestra (Yiorgos Vassilandonakis, conductor).
Scores at each level of the creative process are found below:
Below are examples of raw system outputs demonstrating different configurations and how well they work (some better than others). For more information, see the above publications.
