*ABSTRACT*


Folk music, by its nature, involves folks. So it’s absurd to think a
computer can compose such music. I will show how it’s not absurd at all. My
international research and creative team has been applying methods of
“machine learning” to modeling folk music – specifically, tens of thousands
of “Celtic” tunes typically played in communities and festivals around
Ireland, France and the UK. The result is a computer program that can
generate an endless number of tunes. With human interpretation, these tunes
can become music sharing a surprising number of qualities with “genuine”
folk music. Will you be able to tell which is which?
