Music composition, by machine, requires the solution of a number of difficult problems in the fields of algorithm design, data representation, human interface design, and software engineering in general. These aforementioned problems led to the emergence of the objectives of this research. Consequently, a concept formulation was derived from the existing algorithmic composition models – where their strengths were harnessed and their weaknesses transparently subdued. This brought about the hybridization of the existing models that gave birth to Hybridized Interactive Algorithmic Composition model that leverages on the speed and accuracy of the computer to complement human creativity in music improvisation and composition. This paper presents both the melody synthesis and rhythm creation processes of the Hybridized Interactive Algorithmic Composition Model.
