Some time ago I began a piece using Charles Atkins Cosmetic Music Game based on the phrase "The Gathered Meeting".
It finally became this piece for two basses and a cool drummer: https://www.jimcrozier.com/adhoc/TheGatheredMeeting-jazz-real-2-n.mp3

Here is a String Quartet that I wrote back in 1979 as performed at a recital I did at FSU way back then. It's pretty neat, includes a lot of improvization interspersed with the notes written in the score.

It is called "Pair of Deuces",

scored for Violin and Cello vs. Viola and Bass.
