Can algorithms create “human-quality” short stories, sonnets and limericks? The competition is to determine whether people can distinguish between human and algorithmic creativity. The goal is not to replace human creativity, but to assess whether current computational technology can produce outputs that cannot be distinguished from it.
Algorithms are at the heart of the virtual studio software applications underwriting so much contemporary dance music, but are normally the prior preserve of music engineering teams rather than musicians. This special issue, however, engages with algorithms as musical material, and especially with music which is inherently founded on computer programming technique.
