5 Preludes on TonicNet Synthetic Chorales #3

These are based on four of the synthetic chorales that I manufactured using the TonicNet GRU deep neural network model. They are in A minor, C major, A minor, C major, and repeat the first at the end in A minor. Each uses a different arpeggiation matrix. The tempos are based on how many notes in the synthetic chorale. With more notes, the tempo is faster, with fewer notes, it’s slower. I made 500 chorales, and then selected some that were of a moderate length. I looked for those in complementary major and minor keys, settling on A minor and C major. A different selection criteria would have different results. This is referred to in the deep learning literature as “cherry picking”. But I’m sure Bach would approve.
