Title:Musical Acts and Musical Agents
Authors: David Murray-Rust ; Alan Smaill
Date:Jul 2005
Publication Title:5th MUSICNETWORK Open Workshop
Publication Type:Conference Paper
In this paper we present a proposed system for creating a group of Musical Agents, who treat music making as a social, communicative process. Drawing on the ideas of Speech Act Theory, we develop an analogous theory of Musical Acts. We use this theory to develop a model of a musical agent system which acts as musical middleware to human composers.
