Artistic and Intelligent Music

Gershon Wolfe, Ph.D. on SoundBetter

I create software that generate musical melodies using rule-based artificial intelligence. Then, use this software, in combination with real acoustic instruments, to generate pieces of music.

Algorythms LLC is dedicated to creating a sophisticated and state-of-the-art system for generating musical melodies. This system is called, arsNovaTM. We believe that a combination of techniques pulled from several disciplines are necessary to create the most knowledgeable tool for algorithmic music composition. Applying statistical physics and thermodynamics to tackle the problems associated with selecting the most appropriate melodies is an important part of our system. arsNovaTM generates many melodies via rule-based artificial intelligence and chooses a subset of three melodies based on level of complexity. Each level of complexity is used in combination with one another to generate a complete and original piece of music.
