Project description
Computational Creativity is a multidisciplinary field that unites Computer Scientists, Engineers, Philosophers, Psychologists and Artists with the common goal of understanding how human creativity works, and if it can be replicated on a machine. When applied to the field of music, one of the most common questions is whether a computer is capable of composing music on its own. My project focuses on algorithmic composition, based on the automated study of hierarchical structures in music, hoping to create a meta-description of melodic and harmonic structures that can help create music by computer that is both novel and human-like.
