  abstract =     "An algorithmic compositional system that uses hill
                 climbing to create short melodies is presented. A
                 context free grammar maps each section of the resultant
                 individual to a musical segment resulting in a series
                 of MIDI notes described by pitch and duration. The
                 dissimilarity between each pair of segments is measured
                 using a metric based on the pitch contour of the
                 segments. Using a GUI, the user decides how many
                 segments to include and how they are to be distanced
                 from each other. The system performs a hill-climbing
                 search using several mutation operators to create a
                 population of segments the desired distances from each
                 other. A number of melodies composed by the system are
                 presented that demonstrate the algorithm's ability to
                 match the desired targets and the versatility created
                 by the inclusion of the designed grammar.",
