“Automating the muse”

Why should we endeavour to simulate musical composition or performance? Will the essence of musical creativity and inspiration always lie beyond analysis? If compositional processes can be automated, what are the implications for flesh and blood composers? What can we learn from far earlier systems, rendered on pen and paper, that can help us to establish the utility or aesthetics of automatic composition systems today? Composer, automatist and sound historian Sarah Angliss gives a personal take on the conference theme, looking at approaches to musical automation, composition and performance from the Renaissance to the era of Artificial Life.

“Alien Music”

Alien Music can be difficult. Many find the music incomprehensible and tedious. Others talk of glimpsed structures, of patterns and extraterrestrial mathematics, of a new aesthetics. We suggest how information theory might enable us to understand this mysterious music and provide a dynamical model of alien-human musical interaction.
