TraSe algorithm : automatic evolutionary morphing of electronic dance music
Wooller, Rene & Brown, Andrew R. (2009) TraSe algorithm : automatic evolutionary morphing of electronic dance music. In Sorensen, Andrew C. (Ed.) Improvisation: Australasian Computer Music Conference, Australasian Computer Music Association, Brisbane, pp. 64-71.
The TraSe (Transform-Select) algorithm has been developed to investigate the morphing of electronic music through automatically applying a series of deterministic compositional transformations to the source, guided towards a target by similarity metrics. This is in contrast to other morphing techniques such as interpolation or parameters or probabilistic variation. TraSe allows control over stylistic elements of the music through user-defined weighting of numerous compositional transformations. The formal evaluation of TraSe was mostly qualitative and occurred through nine participants completing an online questionnaire. The music generated by TraSe was generally felt to be less coherent than a human composed benchmark but in some cases judged as more creative.
