I took a traditional Japanese MIDI file and filtered it using the "In Japan" scale in the Key of C, then I harmoized it using random chord formulas that I selected.

Wow, I have a lot of 3rd party instruments/effects and so many presets within those instruments/effects too.
Plus with the scripts that I have, I create some pretty cool MIDI songs.
The Kinetic Metal demo is me just playing out something cool, then I use the scripts to find chords and generate music.

I see how the start of this (first 45 secs) could work in a spooky drone. The rest is a little too random for my taste.
This is generally my feeling with the tracks your posting - a certain randomness. I guess that was what my question
from a few days related to.

I simply find chords that have notes in them that the melody also has in it.

That means knowing what notes are in every chord.
Success is failure analyzed

Sometimes the truth feels good. Sometimes bad. But it's always good for us.

The world's greatest music was written without the technology we have today.

I audio-to-midi a bass from a Tony Franklin library I bought.
Then in order to play it properly with Rickenbacker Bass, I just made some adjustments to the MIDI.
Then after that, I harmonized it to A Minor.
