Title:Music Representation - Between the Musician and the Computer
Authors:Smaill,AD; Wiggins,G; Miranda,E
Date:Nov 1993
Abstract:In any automated tool designed for use in a musical context, the choice of representation language is crucial. The Charm system, as presented in [Wiggins et al., 1993], was designed as a general purpose musical representation system. In this paper we consider how a system intended to foster the creative exploration of a musical soundworld could make use of such a representation. The ability to support multiple perspectives upon musical material is thought to be important, and we explain how this is supported. We also indicate how to incorporate automated support for the process of generalising from musical examples to a higher-level description.
