    As a professional musician, I am reasonably certain that within my lifetime, such a thing would be possible. There is already a computer program that is able to improvize melodies, solos, chord progressions, etc. You just tell it you want something that sounds a bit like Miles Davis, and it will generate a song in that style. You can give it the exact same instructions a second time and it will create a completely different song in the same style. Granted, at this point in development, it still sounds rather mechanical and un-heartfelt, but yikes.

Please comment with your real name using good manners.
