Abstract or Description

We examine the field of algorithmic composition from the perspective of computational creativity. We begin by introducing the idea of computational creativity as a philosophical perspective. Next, we introduce a method for consideration of the properties of creative systems, the Creative Systems Framework (CSF). We then use the CSF as a starting point for discussion of a system of comparison specific to algorithmic composition as an artistic and technical practice. Finally, we sketch a road map for future developments in algorithmic composition and live coding, in these terms.
