Other Generated Pieces

We find that HMMs generated more consonant pieces when trained on harmonically simple original pieces, built on perfect intervals, such as the perfect fourth or perfect fifth intervals. Below are two additional examples of HMM generated pieces trained on original pieces built on perfect intervals.
