From the Publisher"What makes this book a great success is that Rowe's original concepts remain sharply in focus while he draws deeply from the disparate fields of music cognition, music theory, artificial intelligence, computer science, performance and music composition. Rowe's experience creating interactive music and multimedia brings another dimension of insight. His excellent descriptions of creative work,creative processes, and their technical implementations make this an invaluable resource for composers."—Todd Winkler, Department of Music, Brown University
"The scholarship here is excellent. I believe Machine Musicianship will be not only a significant contribution to interactive music performance system research but also a valuable active review of much of the literature and research in music cognition and computer music."—Leigh Smith, Senior Research Engineer,tomandandy music inc.
"Robert Rowe shows convincingly that true musicianship is as much about listening as about playing. In this exciting book he demonstrates how to build listening machines, skillfully explaining the relevant theories in music cognition on the way."—Peter Desain and Henkjan Honing, "Music, Mind, Machine" Group, Nijmegen Institute for Cognition and Information (NICI), Nijmegen University
"Cutting across the boundaries of psychology, music theory, and artificial intelligence, this book captures the state of the art of music listening and performance by computer. This very practical and readable guide is an essential reference."—Roger B. Dannenberg, Senior Research Computer Scientist and Artist,Carnegie Mellon University
