Abstract

This paper introduces an evolutionary system for the emergence of a shared repertoire of sounds in virtual communities of agents with a sound making instrument, a listening system, a memory device and a cognitive module. The paper begins with a general introduction to computer-generated music followed by a discussion on the potential of Evolutionary Computing techniques for musicology. Then, it introduces our system followed by commented examples. The paper ends with a brief assessment of the system and considers further work.

Keywords: artificial life, origins of music, evolutionary music, computer music
