Call for Participation
Live Algorithms for Music research network

LAM is a new EPSRC funded Culture and Creativity research
network. We are establishing a community of performers,
composers, engineers and scientists whose aim is the development
of artificial, but autonomous, musical collaborators.

LAM believes that such a machine, able to interact creatively
with musicians in real-time, and in any context, will have
fascinating artistic potential, and could form the basis of the
next generation of computer music applications.

Some research topics that have been outlined are:
Novel patterning algorithms from non-musical fields (e.g.
evolutionary computation, a-life, swarm intelligence, chaos,
dynamic networks, cellular automata, neural networks and machine
Real-time music informatics,
Models of creative interactivity and improvisation,
Musician-computer interfaces and performativity.

Membership already includes prominent musicians and
representatives from many of the above fields.

New members/institutions are welcome to join and participate in
our activities.

First Meeting
