Someone who wants to compose or improvise music faces two immediate questions:

What should the music sound like? This is often answered by referring to existing pieces of music. For example, "something like some particular piece, but simultaneously like some other..."


How do I construct the music? Constructing original music typically requires specialized skills for composition of musical material.

Coord automatically analyzes musical patterns and generates new ones. This enables composition by ear, by real-time navigation between selected musical influences, based on relative distances between nested musical expectations (rhythmic anticipations and their outcomes).
