Abstract - Secondary melody music is a type of accompanying music that is in perfect harmony with the main melody. The objective of this paper is to automate the process of sec-ondary melody generation. We develop two versions of secondary melody genera-tors; the first applies artificial neural networks while the second applies case-based reasoning. We perform our experiments on a data set of 120 musical melodies ac-companied by their corresponding secondary melodies. Our results show that case-based reasoning secondary melody generator outperformed the artificial neural net-works generator by a success percentage of 50%.
