i am looking to make a classification of different applications for generative music (generative as a synonym for algorithmic). So far I used the following division:
Maurer (1999) speaks of stochastic and deterministic music. Suppr (2002) divides deterministic music in
- rule-based music for modeling of traditional compositional concepts (for example to make Bach chorales)
- rule-based music for modelling of new, original compositional methods
- rule-based music based on extra-musical phenomena like L-systems, cellular automata.
I believe that these three categories can be subdivided in
- rule-based methods (the rules are hard coded in the system)
- genetic algorithms
- neural networks
Does anyone objects this view or is this a good division in different categories?
