Evolutionary Rhythm Composition Evolutionary Rhythm Composition with Trajectory-based Fitness Evaluation

John Huddleston, Dr. Jianna Zhang

Evaluating creativity in musical genetic algorithms (GAs) requires a balance between objective and subjective fitness measures. This research investigates the use of user-defined compositional rules for composition of rhythmic pieces of any length. Complete pieces of music can be created according to personal definitions of creativity without direct human involvement in the evolutionary process.
