Amplifying Compositional Intelligence: Creating with a psychologically-inspired generative music system
MetadataShow full item record
We describe the Motivator, a newly developed Computer Assisted Composition (CAC) tool for generating variations of melodic motives. The motivator helps composers to make Gestalt switches in interpretation of multistable motives, generates variations that preserve structural tones in a given interpretation, and suggests variations that enhance the multistability of the motive. The tool has been used in the composition of Entanglement, a work for piano, percussion and live electronics.
