Abstract and Keywords

The future development of artificially intelligent musicians depends upon an engagement with machine-learning technology. Human musicians have the benefit of long periods of study, which for expert musicians typically exceeds 10,000 hours of practice; machine musicians must match such dedication. This chapter reviews manifestations of machine learning in computer music systems, with a particular emphasis on live interactive agents. The LL (Listening and Learning) system is further described and critiqued, as used in performances for drummer and computer, and electric violin and computer.

Keywords: machine learning, musical artificial intelligence, interactive music systems, machine musician
