Abstract

Excerpt from the first paragraph: "From a number of plausible definitions of music, the one that frequently stands out in musicological research is the notion that music is an intellectual activity; that is, the ability to recognise patterns and imagine them modified by actions. We understand that this ability is the essence of the human mind: it requires sophisticated memory mechanisms, involving both conscious manipulations of concepts and subconscious access to millions of networked neurological bonds. In this case, it is assumed that emotional reactions to music arise from some sort of intellectual activity. "

Keywords: artificial intelligence, computer music
