MUME 2018

6th International Workshop on Musical Metacreation

Held at the Ninth International Conference on Computational Creativity, ICCC 2018.

University of Salamanca, Salamanca, Spain, June 25-26, 2018.


We are excited to announce 6th International Workshop on Musical Metacreation (MUME 2017) be held in conjunction with the Ninth International Conference on Computational Creativity, ICCC 2018.

Thanks to continued progress in artistic and scientific research, a new possibility has emerged in our musical relationship with technology: Generative Music or Musical Metacreation, the design and use of computer music systems which are “creative on their own.” Metacreation involves using tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and life sciences. Musical Metacreation suggests exciting new opportunities to enter creative music making: discovery and exploration of novel musical styles and content, collaboration between human performers and creative software “partners”, and design of systems in gaming and entertainment that dynamically generate or modify music.

MUME brings together artists, practitioners and researchers interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, compose, complete, accompany, or interpret music. As such, we welcome contributions to the theory or practice of generative music systems and their applications in new media, digital art, and entertainment at large. Join us at MUME 2018 and take part in the exciting spirit of this growing community!
