Perspectives of New Music
The Institute of the GMD (Gesellschaft fir Mathematik und Datenverarbeitung) in the neighbourhood of the small village Sankt Augustin (near Bonn, Germany) was the host of the first workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Music, organized by Christoph Lischka of the GMD. This institute comprises modern research facilities on different domains of computer science plus a real castle: Schloss Birlinghoven, all surrounded by hills and woodland. What the Schloss had in style it lacked in acoustics; the speakers at this conference had to insert a brief silence after each sentence for the reverberation to die out. This article will give some of our personal impressions of the workshop. They are grouped in research on environments for music composition (Cope, Potard, Rahn, Blevis, Modler), connectionist approaches to music (Lindster, Leman, Desain and Honing), expert systems for music (Camurri and Zaccaria, Widmer), and the representation of music (Balaban, Bocker and Mahling). The latter could be found in all lectures more or less implicitly.
