A Computational Model For The Generation Of Orchestral Music In The Germanic Symphonic Tradition: A progress report

Sorensen, Andrew C. & Brown, Andrew R. (2008) A Computational Model For The Generation Of Orchestral Music In The Germanic Symphonic Tradition: A progress report. In Wilkie, Sonia & Hood, Anthony (Eds.) Sound : Space - The Australasian Computer Music Conference, 13 July 2008, Sydney.


In this article we report on progress at the Australian CRC for Interac-tion Design investigating the computational generation of orchestral music based in the Germanic Symphonic tradition. We present an introduction to the project including a brief overview of our intended methods and some guiding principles for the project. We then outline the current state of the project and introduce our initial algorithmic system with a special emphasis on an implementation of Paul Hin-demith’s harmonic system. We conclude with some initial findings and future goals. We provide an extensive selection of audio examples on-line that accompany, verify and enhance information provided in this report.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
