Live Algorithms for Music Dec 2005 Meeting
||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||||

The EPSRC-funded Live Algorithms for Music (LAM) research
network is establishing an inter-disciplinary community of
musicians, software engineers and cognitive scientists. Our aim
is to investigate autonomous computers in music. This meeting
explores three important LAM themes: the generation of novelty
through evolutionary processes, person-machine interactivity and
sound environments.

If you wish to attend, please contact info@livealgorithms.org
