Grammatical Music Composition with Dissimilarity Driven Hill Climbing [chapter]

Róisín Loughran, James McDermott, Michael O'Neill
2016 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
A context free grammar maps each section of the resultant individual to a musical segment resulting in a series of MIDI notes described by pitch and duration.  ...  An algorithmic compositional system that uses hill climbing to create short melodies is presented.  ...  For the current system, it was decided to exploit this relationship further, taking a measure of similarity between the musically mapped individuals as a fitness function for the entire population.  ...

Functional Scaffolding for Composing Additional Musical Voices

Amy K. Hoover, Paul A. Szerlip, Kenneth O. Stanley
2014 Computer Music Journal  
Music in FSMC is represented accordingly as a functional relationship between an existing human composition, or scaffold, and a generated set of one or more additional musical voices.  ...  This representation, called functional scaffolding for musical composition (FSMC), exploits a simple yet powerful property of multipart compositions: The pattern of notes and rhythms in different instrumental  ...  Brindle, and Zachary Merritt whose compositions were presented in this paper.  ...

Embracing the Bias of the Machine: Exploring Non-Human Fitness Functions

Arne Eigenfeldt
2012 Zenodo  
Autonomous aesthetic evaluation is the Holy Grail of generative music, and one of the great challenges of computational creativity.  ...  Unlike most other computational activities, there is no notion of optimality in evaluating creative output: there are subjective impressions involved, and framing obviously plays a big role.  ...  Selection and Relationship Functions for a traditional multi-movement work, displaying weightings for selection (above) and relationships (below) between movements.  ...

To deny a fundamental role to the other tonal characteristics and deviations or to exploit them only as effects is to acknowledge that we are still in- hibited by a two-dimensional view of music, and that  ...  For instance, in the case of pitch deviation, one may have to decide first whether its function is purely within the tone as an independent compositional idea, or is used as a modifier in altering the  ... 

A Computer-Assisted Approach to Composing with MaestroGenesis

Paul A. Szerlip, Amy K. Hoover, Kenneth O. Stanley
2012 Zenodo  
MaestroGenesis creates music by exploiting two key ideas behind the functional scaffolding for musical composition (FSMC) approach: (1) that music a function of time and (2) that functional transformations  ...  Music in FSMC is represented as a functional relationship between the scaffold and a generated accompaniment.  ...  Acknowledgments This work was supported in part by the National Science Foundation under grant no.

Computer, Formalisms, Intuition And Metaphors. Α Xenakian And Post-Xenakian Approach

José Luis Besada
2014 Proceedings of the SMC Conferences  
Coming back to music, it does not only touch therefore the area of functional gaps but the conceptions that guide compositional formalisms.  ...  On the other hand, Posadas formalized his shadow metaphor with a computer-aided music tool in order to exploit a large set of music patterns, and not only in an iconic way.  ...

2012 Nano Today  
Tailored materials with tunable properties are crucial for applications as biomaterials, for drug delivery, as functional coatings, or as lightweight composites.  ...  This technique allows one to express the structure, mechanisms and properties of the 'material' in a very different domain, 'music'.  ...  Could we exploit the insights from a composer in constructing music as a hierarchical system in the design of new biomaterials?  ...

exploitation of inter-frequency structure of music data.  ...  Using the NCA, we examine the mapping functions of three fundamental DAE-based models in music source separation; one with single-layer encoder and decoder, one with multi-layer encoder and single-layer  ...  High off-diagonal activity suggests that the mapping function of the model exploits more inter-frequency relationships rather than estimating values that scale the mixture spectra as in scalar-based filtering  ...
