Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


In this paper we present a proposed system for creating a group of Musical Agents, who treat music making as a social, communicative process. Drawing on the ideas of Speech Act Theory, we develop an analogous theory of Musical Acts. We use this theory to develop a model of a musical agent system which acts as musical middleware to human composers.
