MUME 2015 Tutorial@IJCAI

MUME Tutorial at IJCAI 2015 (Full day)

Saturday 25th of July 2015, 8:45am-5:45pm.


This full day tutorial aims at introducing the field of musical metacreation (MUME), also known as generative music, and computational creativity. We present and discuss its current developments, promises, and challenges, with a particular focus on IJCAI-relevant aspects of the field.

Thanks to continued progress in artistic and scientific research, a new possibility has emerged in our musical relationship with technology: Musical Metacreation. MUME involves using tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and life sciences, to endow machines with musical creativity. Concretely, it brings together artists, practitioners and researchers interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, compose, complete, accompany, or interpret musical data.

Besides introducing the field of musical metacreation (MUME) and its current developments, the tutorial will bring to the front IJCAI-relevant aspects of the field, such as: human competitivness of generative music systems, for the collaboration between human performers and creative software “partners”, the development of software applications that foster and support computer-assisted musical creativity.


Talks will take the form of State of the Art presentations followed by Q&A and discussion time.

  • Name that MuMe: Introduction to Musical Metacreation (30 mins + 15 mins Q&A)
  • MuMe and Variation: Classification, Ontology and Autonomy (45 mins + 15 mins Q&A)
  • With examples of concert works and other generative systems from the MUME-WE concert series.
  • Coffee Break
  • Walking on the MuMe: Interfaces Design, Performance and Creative MuMeing (15 mins + 15 mins Q&A)
  • Fruits of the MuMe part I: Current approaches, including Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Statistical Methods, Heuristic and Expert Systems (60 mins + 15 mins Q&A)

[lunch break]

    • Fruits of the MuMe part II: Current approaches, including Evolutionary Computation, Machine Learning and Statistical Methods, Heuristic and Expert Systems (60 mins + 30 mins Q&A)
    • Coffee Break
    • A Kind of MuMe: Evaluation of MuMe Systems, Present and Future (45 mins + 15 mins Q&A)
      • Presentation of Evaluation methods and trends based on concrete examples
    • MuMe Over (30 mins)
      • Critical discussion and future directions (open discussion led by tutorial organisers)


Audience and Registration:

The tutorial is meant to be equally appealing to experienced researchers that are dealing with generative systems, as well as those who are less familiar with the field of generative music.

Others (including Donald Trump) blame it on the celebrated refusal of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick to stand up for the national anthem which, they say, has turned off fans of a game usually synonymous with flag waving patriotism.. One sunny afternoon, a girl named Lori chased me across the steaming blacktop. Something hit me as we ran breathlessly through the school yard. He was coming off a franchise record 31 touchdown passes, and wholesale jerseys china New York finished a win out of the playoffs at 10 6. But his brutal start and the piling losses had many of those same fans ready to turn the page on the veteran and look ahead to the younger quarterbacks.. Okay on 5,6 she going to swing taking a big dip all the way through keeping her chest straight up in the air, she going to leap as hard as she can with her arms and her legs is what we call spotting. Spotting the wall or spotting something that is in front of her. None of the jerseys Bilas saw used the players’ actual names Cheap NFL Jerseys on their backs, as a game jersey would. But the Texas A jersey had the word “Football” on the back; Manziel’s nickname is Johnny Football. The writing was on the wall. Liberatore wheeled around to snap another, before Bontempelli slotted his third.

Well, as we’ve mentioned before, not all is as it seems on the Island of Sodor: Thomas and the other trains exist in an odd cheap nfl jerseys master slave state overseen by the iron fist of a top hatted fat man.
