Strasheela is a highly expressive constraint-based music composition
system. Users declaratively state a music theory and the computer
generates music which complies with this theory. A theory is
formulated as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP) by a set of
rules (constraints) applied to a music representation in which some
aspects are expressed by variables (unknowns). Music constraint
programming is style-independent and is well-suited for highly
complex theories (e.g. a fully-fledged theory of harmony). Results
can be output into various formats including MIDI, Lilypond, and Csound.

This release adds music theoretical concepts. A generalized version
of Schoenberg's guidelines on writing good tonal chord progressions
have been implemented as constraints. Strasheela now facilitates
composition in 31-tone equal temperament (31 ET). For example,
various 31 ET chords and scales are provided, and output to Lilypond,
as well as Csound is supported. 31 ET MIDI output can be defined by
the user, depending on your MIDI setup. Other additions and bugfixes
have been made to the system as well.
