Generative Music in Live Performance

Brown, Andrew R. (2005) Generative Music in Live Performance. In Opie, Timothy T. & Brown, Andrew R. (Eds.) Australasian Computer Music Conference, July 12-14, Brisbane.


This paper describes a generative score display system for algorithmic composition and score presentation de-veloped for use in the author’s work "Appearances." A performance of the work requires musicians to sight-read scores that are generated during the performance and displayed as common practice notation on screens. The paper outlines the approaches to score generation and display then discusses the practical considerations of performing "Appearances" using the system.
