The six questions below appear as survey participants saw them for the listener study described in the GECCO 2011 submission, Interactively Evolving Harmonies with Functional Scaffolding. The accompaniment tracks in MIDIs 3, 4, and 5 were generated by FSMC. MIDI 1 is a computer-generated control that is intentionally poor and MIDI 2 is the original Bad Girl's Lament without accompaniment. Special thanks to Barry Taylor for granting permission to utilize his own MIDI productions of folk music in this work. Barry Taylor orginally sequenced both Bad Girl's Lament and Scarborough Fair without accompaniment.
