May I kindly inform this group that at long last I've gotten going on
the composing program I've been thinking about for many years, which I
attempted to write at least five times, which led me to realize the
importance of tightening my theoretical foundationts, which led me to
research in German folksongs for 3 years, with a program that is
supposed to reason about them, a problem that is already tantamount to
composition, so I feel confiudent I can now smoothly transit back to
where I was. The program is not generating any music, as I'mn working
on synthesizing technical descriptions first. I really look forward to
the day when this thing actually makes noises! It's been my lidelong
ambition
to do this.

best wishes,
