Use of genetic algorithms and dynamic programming to construct compositional principles from symbolic primitives to generate emotionally responsive mu

It has been established that "music, in its own right, does not exist". Using this principle, it was established a method of meta-composition using generative symbolic primitives that can be tagged by emotional meaning. Based on the principles established and on the framework proposed, investigate the artificially intelligent automation of the job of composer/analyst. This research will establish how, and to what extent, can the principles of composition be inferred from the artefacts of scores and recordings given a symbolic, mind-based, generative theory of composition.
