For the magazine, see Computer Music magazine. Delerue, “Guessing the Composer’s Mind: Musical Interaction with Style. Retrieved 9 July The oldest known recordings of computer generated music were played by the Ferranti Mark 1 computer, a commercial version of the Baby Machine from the University of Manchester in the autumn of A high speed machine such as the I.

Many systems for generating musical scores actually existed well before the time of computers. In other projects Wikimedia Commons. Advances in computing power and software for manipulation of digital media have dramatically affected the way computer music is generated and performed. There exist programs that generate “human-sounding” melodies by using a vast database of phrases.

Significant Composers and Their Works”. The term computer-aidedrather than computer-assisted, is used in the same manner as computer-aided design.

Computer music

Synthesis, Composition, and Performancewhich has become of the main sources for this genre of music. This is usually done by sophisticated recombination of musical phrases extracted from existing music, either live or pre-recorded.


Views Read Edit View history. Generative musicEvolutionary musicand Genetic algorithm.

The label algorithmic composition is likewise too broad, particularly in that it does not dodgw the use of a computer. This label is derived from the combination of two labels, each too vague for continued use.

Retrieved 4 December Programs would run for hours or days, on multimillion-dollar computers, to generate a few minutes of music.

Style modeling implies building a computational representation of the musical surface that captures important stylistic features from data. When patched together, these phrases combined to create musical pieces which could be performed by human players. In the CSIR Mark 1 was used to play music, the first cimputer use of a digital computer for the purpose.

The label computer-aided composition lacks the specificity of using generative algorithms. Machine improvisation uses computer algorithms to create improvisation on existing music materials.

In order to achieve credible improvisation in particular style, machine improvisation uses machine learning and pattern matching algorithms to analyze existing musical examples. Retrieved 29 August Computers have also been used in an attempt to imitate the music of great composers of the past, such as Mozart. Computer-aided algorithmic composition CAAC, pronounced “sea-ack” is the implementation and use of algorithmic composition techniques jeres software. You are commenting using your WordPress.

Two further major s developments were the origins of digital sound synthesis by computer, and of algorithmic composition programs beyond rote playback. Archived from the original on 18 January Generative musicEvolutionary musicand Genetic algorithm.

The resulting patterns are then used to create new dodfe “in the style” of the original music, developing a notion of stylistic reinjection. Email required Address never mjsic public. Retrieved 28 October Later, he extended the same kind of principles jersee the realm of synthesis, enabling the computer to produce the sound directly.


The field of computer music can trace its roots back to the origins of electronic musicand the very first experiments and innovations with electronic instruments at the turn of eodge 20th century. Another ‘cybernetic’ approach to computer composition uses specialized hardware to detect external stimuli which are then mapped by the computer to realize the performance.

Charles Dodge’s Speech Songs

Research has shown that people speculated about computers playing music, possibly because computers would make noises, [1] but there is no evidence that they actually did it.

Computer music programming languages. McGraw-Hill, ; reprinted Westport, Conn.: Statistical approaches are used to capture the redundancies in terms of pattern dictionaries or repetitions, which are later recombined to generate new musical data. Generally, this practice stages a more general approach: All Music Guide to Electronica: The resulting patterns are then used to create new variations “in the style” of the original music, developing a notion of stylistic reinjection.
