ANTON: Composing Logic and Logic Composing

ANTON is an automatic music composition system written in a declarative programming language, called AnsProlog.

Abstract

In this presentation I will highlight one of the applications Bath has been working on for the last five years: ANTON. ANTON is an automatic music composition system written in a declarative programming language, called AnsProlog. The use of a logic programming language allows for an intuitive mechanism for representing the rules that govern the various aspects of music: melody, harmony and rhythm. ANTON can be used as automatic composer, an interactive composition aid or analysis tool without the need to change the encoding.
The talk will focus on the various components and their representation together with a discussion of the current and future challenges for the system.
