A Comparison of Genetic Operations to Produce Musical Structures

Authors Abrante, D.
Year 2005
Thesis Type Audio Engineering project
Topic Algorithmic Composition
Abstract My work for this project concerns genetic algorithms in the area of algorithmic composition. Starting with a historical overview, a profound introduction into the principles of these algorithms is given, followed by a detailed description of important research in that field. The main focus of this work is to compare the effectiveness of different genetic operations by reconstructing already composed musical material.
