No great effort was made to ensure the quality or 'listenability' of the resultant music. The only requirement was that there would be a good mix of melodic and accompaniment components - 'melodic' defined here as shorter sequences of notes, with the 'accompaniment' consisting of longer, more-slowly-changing instrument lines. The result of this experiment, to my mind, is not so much 'good' as perhaps informative. While they all sound very similar, by 'listening past the instruments' you can hear the differences, subtle as they may be at times.
Perhaps a further experiment, an inversion of sorts, is appropriate: one image and a number of different configurations to see how the results can be made to vary, starting from a single source.
