Understanding Music with AI

Perspectives on Music Cognition

Edited by Mira Balaban, Kemal Ebcioglu, and Otto Laske

This "book addresses itself to four different communities: the professional musician, the professional music technologist and designer of music systems, the professional AI researcher, and the professional cognitive scientist and cognitive psychologist.... It goes without saying that the book also addresses itself to teachers of music. The book could serve as a textbook for a course introducing questions of musical problem solving and performance, as well as the nature of musical knowledge and of theories of music.... The book should [also] be of benefit to readers generally interested in the relationship of music and technology."
