  1. TraSe algorithm : automatic evolutionary morphing of electronic dance music
    Wooller, Rene; Brown, Andrew
    [2009]
    The TraSe (Transform-Select) algorithm has been developed to investigate the morphing of electronic music through automatically applying a series of deterministic compositional transformations to the source, guided towards a target by similarity metrics. This is in contrast to other morphing techniques such as interpolation or parameters or probabilistic variation. TraSe allows control over stylistic elements of the music through user-defined weighting of numerous compositional transformations. The formal evaluation of TraSe was mostly qualitative and occurred through nine participants completing an online questionnaire. The music generated by TraSe was generally felt to be less coherent than a human composed benchmark but in some cases judged as more creative.
  2. A framework for discussing tonality in electronic dance music
    Wooller, Rene; Brown, Andrew
    [2008]
    We present a framework for discussing tonality in Elec-tronic Dance Music (EDM) which highlights how tonal techniques are employed creatively throughout EDM. While most musicological analysis of EDM focuses on rhythm, we contend that composer/producers of EDM play with a sense of tonality that often defies traditional analytic techniques. The rich tonality of EDM tracks may be illuminated by using our framework, which is broader and more contextually relevant to EDM than standard western classical music approaches to analysis. The framework consists of four attributes that are used to describe the nature of tonality over the course of the mu-sic: rate of tonal change, tonal stability, pitch/noise ratio and number of independent pitch streams. We will define and illustrate these attributes using numerous audio examples. In a practical sense, our framework may be useful for generating more detailed discussions and analysis of tonality in EDM and may lay the basis for formal systems of tonal analysis of EDM in the future.
  3. The Morph Table: A collaborative interface for musical interaction
    Brown, Andrew; Wooller, Rene; Kate, Thomas
    [2007]
    The Morph Table is a new music interface designed for collaborative music making. It comprises a software system that generates transitions and variations (morphs) between MIDI-based musical material, and a table-top hardware design on which cubes representing algorithmic parameters are moved around to control generative music. Like other table-top interfaces the size and multiple objects afford social interaction. The generative music system of the Morph Table makes it particularly suited to installations and use by inexperienced users. This paper outlines the design and usage features of the Morph Table.
  4. Techniques for automated and interactive note sequence morphing of mainstream electronic music
    Wooller, Rene
    [2007]
    Note sequence morphing is the combination of two note sequences to create a ‘hybrid transition’, or ‘morph’. The morph is a ‘hybrid’ in the sense that it exhibits properties of both sequences. The morph is also a ‘transition’, in that it can segue between them. An automated and interactive approach allows manipulation in realtime by users who may control the relative influence of source or target and the transition length. The techniques that were developed through this research were designed particularly for popular genres of predominantly instrumental electronic music which I will refer to collectively as Mainstream Electronic Music (MEM). The research has potential for application within contexts such as computer games, multimedia, live electronic music, interactive installations and accessible music or “music therapy”. Musical themes in computer games and multimedia can morph adaptively in response to parameters in realtime. Morphing can be used by electronic music producers as an alternative to mixing in live performance. Interactive installations and accessible music devices can utilise morphing algorithms to enable expressive control over the music through simple interface components. I have developed a software application called LEMorpheus which consists of software infrastructure for morphing and three alternative note sequence morphing algorithms: parametric morphing, probabilistic morphing and evolutionary morphing. Parametric morphing involves converting the source and target into continuous envelopes, interpolation, and converting the interpolated envelopes back into note sequences. Probabilistic morphing involves converting the source and target into probability matrices and seeding them on recent output to generate the next note. Evolutionary morphing involves iteratively mutating the source into multiple possible candidates and selecting those which are judged as more similar to the target, until the target is reached. I formally evaluated the probabilistic morphing algorithm by extracting qualitative feedback from participants in a live electronic music situation, benchmarked against a live, professional DJ. The probabilistic algorithm was competitive, being favoured particularly for long morphs. The evolutionary morphing algorithm was formally evaluated using an online questionnaire, benchmarked against a human composer/producer. For particular samples, the morphing algorithm was competitive and occasionally seen as innovative; however, the morphs created by the human composer typically received more positive feedback, due to coherent, large scale structural changes, as opposed to the forced continuity of the morphing software.
  5. Review of Composition Morphing: Works, Techniques, Applications and Possibilities
    Wooller, Rene
    [2006]
  6. A framework for comparison of process in algorithmic music systems
    Wooller, Rene; Brown, Andrew; Miranda, Eduardo; Diederich, Joachim; Berry, Rodney
    [2005]
    This paper presents a framework being developed to clarify discussion of algorithmic musical processes. We will firstly present some of the current terminological problems then discuss related research and background concepts. Following this, two principal attributes that enable intuitive comparison of algorithmic compositional processes will be defined in detail. The framework will then be demonstrated by applying it to some representative examples of differing algorithmic music systems.
