You can create a song just by listening and choosing. The only thing you have to do is make some choices and push some buttons. That’s all! The program does the rest, it is a sort of artificial intelligence that knows everything about the art of composition.
After downloading ESB, start the program, and follow the instructions in the manual. Choose Lesson 1, this only contains the elements we have discussed so far.
– It generates chord progressions with I, IV and V (and V7)
– Uses non chord notes: passing & auxiliary notes, anticipations, appogiatura’s, suspensions, retardations.
– It actually also uses cadences already, but never mind that, we will discuss them later on.
