The course lecturer is Alan Smaill.
Lectures are Monday and Thursday at 5:10 pm.
We meet in G200 Seminar Room 3 (Doorway 3), Medical School Teviot
The course covers the principal theories, techniques and algorithms
developed recently to give computational accounts of how musical
phenomena can be analysed, generated and mediated with machine support
or collaboration. The emphasis is on concepts, rather than tools, but
the ideas have wide applicability. The state of the art is presented
in selected areas.
