It is the piano tune in this 90 second clip that is the AI-generated composition, primed with the four notes C,C,G,C.

The sample is described as: an interesting amalgamation of sounds: simple, but full of complex musical ideas like repeated phrasing, form, and feeling. This may be a bit of an overstatement but it is a start and we’ve seen other machine learning projects…
