It's funny that you said that. I slept over this problem and yes, I want the
chords to have a minimun and maximun duration. They don't need to bee all of
different durations, the important is this section of the piece to sound
like random/chaotic durations, and as we know random numbers (or durations?)
sometimes don't look random. I will even make this again for the attacks of
individual notes of the chords so the section will have a truly chaotic
And by the way the tempo of this section is quarter = 60 so it's very easy
to do this. (thank you Mathieu for making me think about it more deeply)

Thank you guys for the other answers. This really helps.
