The use of pentatonic scales to explore some basic techniques of computer-aided composition is reported. The numeric notation employed to represent pitch and duration is described, examples of pentatonic music and scales are given, and the basic techniques for making music under the guidance of a composer are discussed. The score of a short composition generated with these techniques is shown and discussed.<>
