Course organisation

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.
