This paper presents an approach for the analysis of musical pieces, based on the notion of computer modeling. The thorough analysis of musical works allows to reproduce compositional processes and implement them in computer models, opening new perspectives for the their exploration through the simulation and generation of variations derived from the original model. During the analysis of a musical work, musicologists wonder how different decisions in the elaboration of a composition would have… Expand
Towards a Borgean Musical Space: An Experimental Interface for Exploring Musical Models
TLDR
An experimental tool is discussed, as an attempt to visualise the space of instances that can be generated from a musical piece's model, in an interface attached to a class in the OpenMusic environment. Expand
Rudiments of Simulation-Based Computer-Assisted Analysis Including a Demonstration With Steve Reich’s Clapping Music
Based on previous experiments the article presents the most basic principles of a computational approach for musical analysis that through deterministic algorithms aims to reconstruct and thenExpand
SEED, FROM DOUBLE HELIX
“Seed” is the third movement of Double Helix (2019), a sonification-inspired algorithmic composition in four movements that utilizes genomic data as source material. Influenced by the early music ofExpand
Composition assistée par ordinateur : techniques et outils de programmation visuelle pour la création musicale
TLDR
Ces travaux se demarquent par une ouverture de the CAO a des champs disciplinaires tels que le traitement du signal, le son spatialise, ou encore the programmation reactive, dans une demarche visant a unifier des concepts clivant traditionnellement la recherche and le developpement en informatique musicale.

Formal Aspects of Iannis Xenakis' "Symbolic Music": A Computer-Aided Exploration of Compositional Processes
TLDR
Computer models of two works for solo instrument by Iannis Xenakis are presented: Herma for piano and Nomos Alpha for cello and the theoretical concepts used by Xenakis in his creative process are discussed. Expand
The spectral music of James Tenney
Between 1971 and 2006, James Tenney created more than fifty significant works of what is now commonly called ‘spectral music’. In their materials and procedures, his compositions frequentlyExpand
Tempus ex Machina: A composer's reflections on musical time
This article is divided into three sections (the skeleton of time, the flesh of time, and the skin of time) and clearly distinguishes conceptual (or Chronometric) time from perceptual (orExpand
Guide to the basic concepts and techniques of spectral music
The music discussed in these two issues makes use of many ideas, terms and techniques which may be unfamiliar to many of its readers. I have asked the individual authors not to concentrate on theseExpand
Computer-Assisted Composition at IRCAM: From PatchWork to OpenMusic
In recent years, IRCAM has been exploring and developing software for computer-assisted composition (CAC). These software packages allow composers and musicologists to formalize and experiment withExpand
Structures Ia Pour Deux Pianos by Boulez: Towards Creative Analysis Using OpenMusic and Rubato
Pierre Boulez introduced the concept of creative analysis (Boissiere 2002) in the late 1980s suggesting that the aim of analysis should be the production of new pieces. Marcel Mesnage and AndreExpand

OpenMusic: visual programming environment for music composition, analysis and research
TLDR
OpenMusic is an open source environment dedicated to music composition that is a full-featured visual programming language based on Common Lisp and CLOS allowing to design processes for the generation or manipulation of musical material. Expand
Analysis by Modeling: Xenakis's ST/10-1 080262
TLDR
An analysis of Xenakis's algorithmic composition ST/10-1 080262 shows that fused granular textures could have been obtained by constraining the use of timbres to closely related classes and by increasing slightly the density of events. Expand
