Exploring polyrhythms, polymeters, and polytempi with the universal grid sequencer framework (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Hunt, S. J. (2020). Exploring polyrhythms, polymeters, and polytempi with the universal grid sequencer framework. https://doi.org/10.1145/3411109.3411122

© 2020 ACM. Polyrhythms, Polymeters, and Polytempo are compositional techniques that describe pulses which are desynchronous between two or more sequences of music. Digital systems permit the sequencing of notes to a near-infinite degree of resolutio... Read More about Exploring polyrhythms, polymeters, and polytempi with the universal grid sequencer framework.

Composing computer generated music, an observational study using IGME: the Interactive Generative Music Environment (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Hunt, S. J., Mitchell, T. J., & Nash, C. (2020). Composing computer generated music, an observational study using IGME: the Interactive Generative Music Environment

Computer composed music remains a novel and challenging problem to solve. Despite an abundance of techniques and systems little research has explored how these might be useful for end-users looking to compose with generative and algorithmic music tec...

Automating algorithmic representations of musical structure using IGME: The Interactive Generative Music Environment (2019)
Presentation / Conference
Hunt, S. J., Mitchell, T., & Nash, C. (2019, December). Automating algorithmic representations of musical structure using IGME: The Interactive Generative Music Environment. Paper presented at Innovation In Music 2019, University of West London

In this paper we explore the recreation of existing musical compositions by representing the music as a series of unique musical bars, and other bars that can be replicated through various algorithmic transformations, inside the Interactive Generativ...

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?.
