Beschreibung:

Musicians have always been acutely aware of the scientific developments of their time. From the discovery almost three thousand years ago of the relationship between the pitch of a note and the length of a string or pipe, to computer models of human musical cognition and intelligence, musicians have looked to science to provide new and challenging ways to study and compose music. Advances in evolutionary biology, from insights into the origins of humans and other species to mappings of the genes that control growth and development, have fostered a new approach to the study of music: evolutionary computation. This book discusses the applications of evolutionary computation to music, and presents tools needed to create and study such systems. The book describes simulation tools that can be combined to create surrogate artificial worlds populated by interacting simulated organisms, which permit complex musical experiments that would otherwise be impossible.
An Introduction to Evolutionary Computing for Musicians.- Evolutionary Computation for Musical Tasks.- Evolution in Digital Audio Technology.- Evolution in Creative Sound Design.- Experiments in Generative Musical Performance with a Genetic Algorithm.- Composing with Genetic Algorithms: GenDash.- Improvizing with Genetic Algorithms: GenJam.- Cellular Automata Music: From Sound Synthesis to Musical Forms.- Swarming and Music.- Computational Evolutionary Musicology.
This book discusses the applications of evolutionary computation to music and the tools needed to create and study such systems. These tools can be combined to create surrogate artificial worlds populated by interacting simulated organisms in which complex musical experiments can be performed. The book demonstrates that evolutionary systems can be used to create and to study musical compositions and cultures in ways that have never before been achieved.
