A framework for comparison of process in algorithmic music systems

Wooller, Rene, Brown, Andrew R, Miranda, Eduardo, Diederich, Joachim, & Berry, Rodney (2005) A framework for comparison of process in algorithmic music systems. In David, Burraston & Ernest, Edmonds (Eds.) Generative Arts Practice, 5-7 December 2005, Sydney, Australia.


This paper presents a framework being developed to clarify discussion of algorithmic musical processes. We will firstly present some of the current terminological problems then discuss related research and background concepts. Following this, two principal attributes that enable intuitive comparison of algorithmic compositional processes will be defined in detail. The framework will then be demonstrated by applying it to some representative examples of differing algorithmic music systems.

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.
