Prog. notes: This piece uses the computer to perform music in "Human character". The composer wrote his original program using C++ computer language to "teach" the computer to generate and play its musical gestures in terms of articulations, dynamics, rhythmic interest, and tempo. The computer can decide its own performance at every moment to give certain freedom of articulations, dynamics, and pitches. However, these elements are controalled by fixing its form, muiscal gesture, phrasings, and pitch registers. In other works, the computer has it own "thinking". That is the idea of the humanization of the computer.
