Abstract:

  • This presentation presents a new approach to “intelligent” algorithmic decision-making in the composition of musical structure. Basic problems of conceiving and composing large formal structures algorithmically when traditional tonal theoretical models no longer suffice are addressed, and a new computer algorithm for producing a variety of generalized temporal structures is proposed. The computer generates a “morphology” (shape) over time which incorporates both static and transitional elements applying one or more such morphologies to different musical parameters.
