    Abstract: The hybridization of models of algorithmic composition models gave birth to Hybridized Interactive Algorithmic Composition (H.I.A.C.) model. This hybridized model was derived from the existing algorithmic composition models – where their strengths were harnessed and their weaknesses transparently subdued. The hybridized model was then analyzed using Unified Modeling Language (UML) as an Object-Oriented Analysis and Design tool. The analysis gave rise to the development of an Object-Oriented software framework for the hybridized model, presented as Java objects with generated JavaDoc hypertext documentation for further developmental references. This research has succeeded in providing music/multimedia programmers with necessary building blocks for implementing and realizing applications which require musical features.This article presents some of the key aspects of the simulation and modeling of the Hybridized Interactive Algorithmic Composition model.
