Computational Musical Creativity

Computers have been used in music both as support for creativity and as creative agents themselves, and both for the composition of the music scores and for writing lyrics. The first algorithmic composition system appeared already in the 1950s (the Illiac suite, Hiller & Isaacson 1958), and since then rule-based systems, stochastic methods, grammar-based methods, neural networks, and evolutionary methods have all been utilised to compose music, and/or for generating lyrics. A master thesis on the topic could address any of these strands and approaches, depending on the student(s) background and interests.
