  1. Hello, All The idea is to generate some improvised lines over the Giant Steps progression. Every time the code is evaluated, a different comping and improvisation is generated. In this first effort, the improvisation is generated by the arpeggios resultating from the voice-leading of the progression. After that, I want to code some superimpositions of other chord substitutions. This is something I came with after studying the Harmonic-Path Function ( through some example by Stephane Boussuge) I also got some Drums from Jazz Trio, by Janusz Podrazik. Below is the commented code and an mp3 showing the result. All the best, Julio gsteps_GEN2.mp3 ;; Giant Steps Progression provided as Harmonic Path. ;; Some chords are repeated (the chords that last more time).

  2. Dear All I'm studying some 4-note cells for Coltrane like jazz patterns from a video lesson of saxophonist Chad Lefkowitz-Brown. The idea is to use a limited number of cells (no more than 10, some diatonic and some chromatic) to create longer lines, like the line below. 1) The idea is to connect the same fragments with different transpositions, adjusting the transpositions according to the construction of the line. I need a code where I can experiment the order and the transpositions of the fragments to create a longer line. Sometimes I can have two times the same pattern with different transposition. 2) The possibility to rotate fragments would be interesting also. 3) Lastly: a random assembling that automatically adjust the transpositions, in a way that each new fragment starts exactly a semitone up or down the preceeding fragment, making a cohesive line. Any help is welcome !! Looking forward to PLAY this patterns on the guitar and record some Videos (where I can mention Opusmodus, of course !) Best ! Julio I tried the form below, but I'm not very happy with that. (setf xa (pitch-fragment 1 4 '(g4 gb4 f4 g4) :transpose '(0)) xb (pitch-fragment 2 3 '(c4 cs4 fs4) :transpose '(0 1 2 1)) xc (pitch-fragment 2 3 '(c4 cs4 fs4) :transpose '(0 1 2 1)) xd (pitch-fragment 2 3 '(c4 cs4 fs4) :transpose '(0 1 2 1)) xe (pitch-fragment 1 3 '(g4 g4 g4) :transpose '(0 1 2 1)) xf (pitch-fragment 4 3 '(c4 c4 c4) :transpose '(0 0 7 2))) (setf seq '(f a e)) (assemble-section 'x seq) (setf jazzline (flatten (assemble-section 'x seq))) (setf rhyjazz (gen-repeat 50 '(s))) (make-omn :length rhyjazz :pitch jazzline) These are not the actual fragments, just some ideas do debug the code...
