Abstract:

  • (Long paper)

    Keywords: Generative music, autonomous agents, performance, computer music, musical metacreation, live algorithms. 

    In this paper we draw on previous research in musical metacreation (MuMe) to propose that novel creative forms are needed to propel innovation in autonomous creative musical agents. We propose the “musebot”, and the “musebot ensemble”, as one such novel form that we argue will provide new opportunities for artistic practitioners working in the MuMe field to better collaborate, evaluate work, and make meaningful contributions both creatively and technically. We give details of our specification and designs for the musebot ensemble project.
