Composer Views: Context in the use of computers for musical composition

Brown, Andrew R. (1998) Composer Views: Context in the use of computers for musical composition. In Actes des Journees d'Imformatique Musicale 1998, 1998, France.


The composer, as a creative artist, is an interesting case for the study of computer usage. They typically work deliberately against the grain of convention, are reknowned for persisting with awkward and tedious tasks, and produce works not so much with the intent of stabilising data or a situation but, instead, structuring sound to perturb or surprise the recipients expectations to some degree. In this paper I will address how we might look at composers in a way which helps us understand their computer usage.

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.
