A Distributed Approach to Musical Composition
Jewell, Michael O., Middleton, Lee, Nixon, Mark S., Prügel-Bennett, Adam and Wong, Sylvia C. (2005) A Distributed Approach to Musical Composition. In, 9th International Conference on Knowledge-Based Intelligent Information and Engineering Systems (KES), Melbourne, Australia, 14 - 16 Sep 2005. Springer-Verlag, 642-648.
Current techniques for automated composition use a single algorithm, focusing on one aspect of musical generation. In our system we make use of several algorithms, distributed using an agent oriented middleware, with each specialising on a separate aspect of composition. This paper describes the architecture and algorithms behind this system, with a focus on the agent framework used for implementation. We show early results which encourage a future application of this framework in automated music composition and analysis.
