If you have a question about this talk, please contact Matthew Ireland.

Computer-generated music has been a point of discussion for many years now. When creating music in this way, it’s important to address what the goal is. Are we trying to produce music that is the most technically accurate it can be? Or are we looking to create something that is aesthetically accomplished to the listener’s ears? I will compare two approaches to solving this problem; a neural network and a genetic algorithm. Discussion will include the respective benefits and pitfalls of each method as well as an introduction to 4-part harmony in the style of J. S. Bach.
