Title:The Use of Constraint Systems for Musical Composition
Date:May 1998
Presented:Accepted for ECAI-98 Workshop on Constraint Programming and Creativity
Abstract:I discuss three issues relevant to the use of constraints in musical AI applications: four-part harmony; serial composition; and music representation. I describe two small pieces of work in the former two, and suggest that the last constitutes an important challenge question for those interested in designing constraint systems.
