Algebraically solving for musical canon features
To make a simple musical canon I had to decide first what features I wanted. I decided that I wanted an 8 note melody for voice 1, voice 2 to play offset of voice 1 by a measure, and voice 3 to play the same melody backwards. and I wanted all 3 playing together to form major or minor chords. So I made this schematic to see what notes would play at the same time, with m(n) n=1..8 the notes of the melody.
The middle one is the one I find the most interesting musically so I made the canon with that...
