Metacreation applies tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and natural science, for creative tasks. Musical Metacreation studies the design and use of these generative tools and theories for music making: discovery and exploration of novel musical styles and content, collaboration between human performers and creative software “partners”, and design of systems in gaming and entertainment that dynamically generate or modify music.
MUME intents to bring together artists, practitioners, and researchers interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, compose, generate, complete, accompany, or interpret music. As such, we welcome contributions to the theory or practice of generative music systems and their applications in new media, digital art, and entertainment at large.


We encourage paper and demo submissions on MUME-related topics, including the following:

  • Models, Representation and Algorithms for MUME
    • Novel representations of musical information
    • Advances or applications of AI, machine learning, and statistical techniques for generative music
    • Advances of A-Life, evolutionary computing or agent and multi-agent based systems for generative music
    • Computational models of human musical creativity
  • Systems and Applications of MUME
    • Systems for autonomous or interactive music composition
    • Systems for automatic generation of expressive musical interpretation
    • Systems for learning or modeling music style and structure
    • Systems for intelligently remixing or recombining musical material
    • Online musical systems (i.e. systems with a real-time element)
    • Adaptive and generative music in video games
    • Generative systems in sound synthesis, or automatic synthesizer design
    • Techniques and systems for supporting human musical creativity
    • Emerging musical styles and approaches to music production and performance involving the use of AI systems
    • Applications of musical metacreation for digital entertainment: sound design, soundtracks, interactive art, etc.
  • Evaluation of MUME
    • Methodologies for qualitative or quantitative evaluation of MUME systems
    • Studies reporting on the evaluation of MUME
    • Socio-economical Impact of MUME
    • Philosophical implication of MUME
    • Authorship and legal implications of MUME
