Return to temperament (In digital systems) (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Renney, N., Gaster, B., & Mitchell, T. (2018, September). Return to temperament (In digital systems). Paper presented at Audio Mostly

Considering the generation of musical tunings, it is reasonable to expect that the many constructs contained in Functional programming languages may provide useful tools for exploring both conventional and new tunings. In this paper we present a numb... Read More about Return to temperament (In digital systems).

A cognitive dimensions approach for the design of an interactive generative score editor (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Hunt, S., Mitchell, T., & Nash, C. (2018, May). A cognitive dimensions approach for the design of an interactive generative score editor. Paper presented at Fourth International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation, Montréal, Canada

This paper describes how the Cognitive Dimensions of Notation can guide the design of algorithmic composition tools. Prior research has also used the cognitive dimensions for analysing interaction design for algorithmic composition software. This wor...

Thoughts on interactive generative music composition (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Hunt, S., Mitchell, T., & Nash, C. (2017, September). Thoughts on interactive generative music composition. Paper presented at 2nd Conference on Computer Simulation of Musical Creativity

The ability for machines to compose novel, interesting and human-esque music is an important and recurring theme in the history of computer music. Modern staff notation remains the most common tool for music composition, and despite the emergence and... Read More about Thoughts on interactive generative music composition.

How can music visualisation techniques reveal different perspectives on musical structure? (2017)
Presentation / Conference
Hunt, S., Mitchell, T., & Nash, C. (2017, May). How can music visualisation techniques reveal different perspectives on musical structure?. Paper presented at Third International Conference on Technologies for Music Notation and Representation, A Coruña, Spain

Standard western notation supports the understanding and performance of music, but has limited provisions for revealing overall musical characteristics and structure. This paper presents several visualisers for highlighting and providing insights int... Read More about How can music visualisation techniques reveal different perspectives on musical structure?.
