I want to thank everyone who replied and who I've otherwise replied to
privately. The problem solutions offered were as interesting, to me,
as he problem definitions <g>.
The randomness of the irrational set of numbers is not really the
emphasis, but having a virtural set of infinite length is, for them,
to be used as "seeds" for the RealDigits' function to convert them to
any number base from 2 thru 12 (for music scales) of any length (for
music melodies) for use in algorithmic musical compostion. Hopefully I
can constrain the results sufficiently with "arbitrary" rules to make
such melodies as "tonal" (or not) as desirable.
Wolfram Research might consider creating a new function called perhaps
"RandomIrrational" the uses from none to three parameters, (1) if
none, it would return an irrational number between 0 and 1 exclusive;
(2) if one (an integer only greater than 1), then it would return an
irrational number from 1 to that integer exclusive; and (3) if 2, then
it would return an irrational number between the two integers
exclusive, and finally (4) if 3 oarameters are included, it would be
like number (2) except that it would be specific to the definition
used to create it (as from those defined on the webpage mentioned.
