About the Author

Eduardo Reck Miranda is a Professor in Computer Music at the University of Plymouth, UK, where he heads the Interdisciplinary Centre for Computer Music Research (ICCMR). He has recently been appointed the Edgard Varese Guest Professor of Computer Music at the Technical University of Berlin. Al Biles has been applying evolutionary computation to music since 1993, when he built the first of many versions of GenJam, the Genetic Jammer. Since that time he and GenJam have performed around the world together, and Al has watched the field of evolutionary computer music emerge as a fascinating creative enterprise. Al is Professor and Undergraduate Program Coordinator in the Department of Information Technology at the Rochester Institute of Technology.


From the reviews: "Evolutionary computation currently plays a dual role in the analysis and development of musical compositions and ideas. ... help musicologists understand the transformation of musical theory and the adaptation of musical components over time. ... This book investigates not only the applications of evolutionary computation to music, but also the components needed to compose musical pieces and the systems that integrate these technologies. ... this book is a welcome source of information." (R. Goldberg, ACM Computing Reviews, Vol. 49 (8), August, 2008)
