Uncle Sam March is a directed semi-aleatoric composition that used 15 tracks from members of www.sound-in.org. It was produced by extracting polyphonic midi from the audio tracks in Sonar X3. The resulting midi tracks midi were quantized, time stretched or compressed as needed and in some cases offset from 0. Though the graphic shows a BPM of 60 it was changed to 90 BPM in what you hear. It was realized using Sonar X3 and Garritan Concert and Marching Band. The tuning employed was devised by Gene Ward Smith and is outlined below:
