I harvested one of the scores generated by my last posting, which stretched ideas found in a famous Charlie Parker solo over randomly generated harmony. I fixed two dissonances that occurred at the end of the two main phrases that were generated. Then I experimented with time shifting the melody that was generated.
I found that I liked it when it was shifted to the right by seven eighth note and then by three quarter notes with respect to the background harmony. With these transformations of the idea applied, it's starting to be hard to recognize that I rode on Bird's shoulders to find this new music.
