The Expression of Aesthetic Principles as Syntactic Structures and Heuristic Preferences and Constraints in a Computer Program that Composes Jazz Improvisations

D. J. H. Brown, and S. Sidley

A computational method of synthesising contemporary jazz melodies over a harmonic base is described. The method implements certain aesthetic principles of musical composition in the forms of constraints upon phrasing patterns and of context-sensitive probabilistic preferences in choosing note durations and pitches.
