Opportunities for Evolutionary Music Composition

Brown, Andrew R. (2002) Opportunities for Evolutionary Music Composition. In Doornbusch, Paul (Ed.) Australasian Computer Music Conference, Melbourne.


Traditional compositional techniques and many computer-assisted composition systems have been focused on the production of linear musical products. In an age where non-linear media are increasingly prominent there is a need to reassess these technologies in the light of new opportunities for making music with non-linear outcomes. This paper examines the current state of music making for non-linear media with a particular emphasis on evolutionary music and how and where it might be applied. In addition, some of the implications for computer-based tool design will be outlined.

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.
