Pat delegated Task 1 to Mike and Keith, and Task 2 to Jerome and Matt. Dave will be assisting both groups. Task 3 will be completed by Paul.

A key question that came up during our discussion pertained to Task 2, "Define Style". Dave approached the group with the question "What characteristics (input data/variables) defined a particular "style" of randomization?". The following list summarizes the brainstorm list made as a result of the discussion:

Style Characteristics

What notes/drums are likely to appear on which beats
“ stress” levels for beats
“ frequency” levels for notes/drums
(include common node sequences)
