Abstract: Inspiration and compositional processes are eclectic and different for each composer. For example, some draw inspiration from literature or nature to inform their musical creativity while others use algorithms and computer programs. This paper introduces a computer-aided algorithmic composition system implemented in OpenMusic. We start the paper with brief background information about algorithmic composition and automatic composition systems, followed by the description of our system. Then, we present some examples to illustrate the abilities of the system. The paper concludes with final remarks.
