In this work, we describe an application to automatically generate chord progressions with an artificial immune system (AIS).


We propose a penalty function that encodes rules about chord construction as vertical constraints and chord progression as horizontal constraints. Then we use the AIS to find chords that minimize the penalty function and propose the next chord in a sequence as a minimum-penalty chord, given the sequence as input. The AIS used is opt-aiNet, an immunological algorithm capable of finding multiple optima in parallel upon convergence, resulting in several chords as candidates for the next in the sequence.
