A Study on the Automated Background Music Composition


The proposed innovated technology is called Automated Background Music Composition, which integrates the new trends of algorithmic composition, music theory, multimedia arts, human-computer-interface (HCI), emotion, tension, etc. Hopefully the conventional background music composition can be not only played as a constant loop, but also performed via the scene settings of the multimedia content. The research is based on algorithmic composition to generate the various music parameter distributions, therefore the game music can be composed automatically according to the variation of the scenarios. The discussion of the HCI with a 2-D emotion coordinate is presented too.
