title MORPHEUS >> emergent music
source International Conference on Generative Art
summary MORPHEUS is a CD of fluid dance music. It features 16 tracks or ‘songs’ by 6 composers and is designed to behave, and be experienced like, a normal audio CD although having to run on a macintosh computer rather than a CD player. In contrast to normal audio, each song uses its own generative algorithms to enable it to exist in a state of ‘fluidity’, so that each time yourun a song you get a unique ‘performance’. (You could say that the music on MORPHEUS is something between a recording and a live performance.)I present here the origins and achievements of the project together with the basis of a discussion of some of the aesthetic issues surrounding it.
