Abstract

Advances in computer processing power have extended the potential of computers in music beyond their common use as a studio tool, to an instrument capable of complex sound analysis and synthesis in real time, and in live performance. This thesis evaluates the expressive potential of computers that can function in autonomous and interactive ways employing models of computational creativity such as Tim Blackwell's 'PfQ' model, Simon Emmerson's theory of 'animacy ' and Oliver Bown's assertions on interaction design.
