Description - Notes from the Metalevel by Heinrich K. Taube

Notes from the Metalevel is a practical introduction to computer composition. It is primarily intended for student composers interested in learning how computation can provide them with a new paradigm for musical composition. Notes from the Metalevel explains through a practical, example-based approach the essential concepts and techniques of computer-based composition, and demonstrates how these techniques can be integrated into the composer's own creative work. One of the most exciting aspects of computer-based composition is that it is an essentially empirical activity that does not require years of formal music theory training to understand. For this reason, Notes from the Metalevel will be of interest to any reader with a high-school mathematics background interested in experimenting with music composition using MIDI and audio synthesis programs. The book will also be of use to computer science and engineering students who are interested in artistic applications of object-oriented programming techniques and music software design. The Aeolian Harp, a composition for piano and computer generated tape (see chapter 23) won the Eric Siday Musical Creativity Award as the top composition submitted to the 2003 International Computer Music Conference.
