Designing a highly expressive algorithmic music composition system for non-programmers

Matthew Francis Bellingham, Simon Holland, Paul Mulholland

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


Algorithmic composition systems allow for the partial or total automation of music composition by formal, computational means. Typical algorithmic composition systems generate nondeterministic music, meaning that multiple musical outcomes can result from the same algorithm - consequently the output is generally different each time the algorithm runs.
