Title:MAMA: An architecture for interactive musical agents
Authors: David Murray-Rust ; Alan Smaill ; Michael Edwards
Date:Sep 2006
In this paper, we present MAMA an architecture for interactive musical agents. This system uses a theory of Musical Acts, based on Speech Act Theory to support the agents interaction. We discuss the basics of a representation language which these agents can use to represent and reason about music. We present a case study system based on these ideas, and discuss its ability to support distributed execution of a minimalist score. Audio recordings of the system are available at
