Two-step Harmonious Melody Generator

S. Latkina (HSE, Moscow)


This paper describes the problem of creating computer music without interruption of humankind in generating algorithm working. It contains review of existing solutions, description of their key features and the attempt of modeling composer’s functions on a computer. Modeling opuses on the basis on unification of musical rhythm and melody line allows providing computer music with given parameters of composition. Using unhackneyed approach leads to the results which differ from the predecessors and suggests new direction for further research and development in the sphere of computer art.
