The evolution of music, from random note strings to certain "pleasant" note sequences, is traced in a multi-agent computational model. A community of agents, with some musical guidelines and expertise from different aspects, compose their own and criticize other's music to improve individual music performance. Based on common musical interest, some social structure with small world characteristics is formed up. Through adopting general rule-based system and some evolutionary mechanisms, this… CONTINUE READING
