The explicit expression of counterpoint rules has always attracted scientists and musicians interested in computer science. It does not come as a surprise that the first musical piece composed with the help of a computer was a counterpoint simulation.1 The algorithmic flavor of the Gradus and its systematic organization into species [29] calls logically for a translation of composition techniques into formal mathematical models and algorithms.
