  • Publication number: 20210049990
    Abstract: A computer-implemented method of generating a piece of music is disclosed. The method comprises: determining an initial sequence of notes for the piece of music; determining at least one probability distribution for selecting at least one subsequent note from a set of candidate notes; generating a biasing output based on data of the initial sequence of notes; and extending the initial sequence of notes with at least one subsequent note selected from the set of candidate notes according to the probability distribution and the biasing output, wherein the biasing output biases the selection so as to affect the likelihood of the selection resulting in a repeat of a musical element formed by the initial sequence of notes.

  • Patent number: 8448280
    Abstract: A bridge replacement method is disclosed. The bridge includes a deck supported by a pair of abutments, each abutment having wing walls. The deck is removed, footings are cast in holes dug behind each abutment and a pier is provided on each footing. Substantially parallel and coplanar cambered beams are provided. Each beam spans between and is supported by the piers. A brace assembly reinforces the beam camber. On each adjacent pair of beams, precast deck elements are placed, such that each element of said plurality spans the beam pair, to define at least transverse gaps between the elements and put the upper surfaces of the elements in compression in a transverse direction. The gaps are grouted. After grout curing, the brace is adjusted to reduce the beam camber and cause the upper surface of the elements to also be put into compression in a direction parallel to the beams.
