AbstractRhythm is at the forefront of musical experience in electronic dance music. It constitutes one of the most essential facets of electronic music and is a skilled task requiring time and commitment from the electronic music producer. Regardless of category, each popular electronic musician requires specific skills, techniques, musical knowledge of rhythm and structure as well as an intimate knowledge of creating tonal colors and timbres through sequencing and arrangement. The construction of rhythmic patterns and the production of appealing rhythmic timelines is both a logical and creative process and some of these process can be computationally modeled using algorithms. We research and present an algorithmic and seed based method for rhythm alternation and evaluate it in terms of its usefulness in the workflow of a contemporary electronic music producer.
