Algorithmic Composition by Gerhard Nierhaus

By Gerhard Nierhaus

Algorithmic composition – composing by way of formalizable tools – has a century previous culture not just in occidental tune background. this is often the 1st booklet to supply a close evaluate of well-known methods of algorithmic composition in a practical method instead of via treating formalizable points in unmarried works. as well as an old evaluate, every one bankruptcy provides a selected category of set of rules in a compositional context via offering a common creation to its improvement and theoretical foundation and describes various musical purposes. each one bankruptcy outlines the strengths, weaknesses and attainable aesthetical implications caused by the applying of the handled techniques. subject matters lined are: markov versions, generative grammars, transition networks, chaos and self-similarity, genetic algorithms, mobile automata, neural networks and synthetic intelligence are lined. the excellent bibliography makes this paintings perfect for the musician and the researcher alike.
