Adaptive BehaviorMusical Automata as Dynamical Systems

This paper explores the use of dynamical systems as a framework for understanding how musically autonomous behavior can be achieved in artifact. Just as dynamics has offered a breakout strategy for the perceived limitations of artificial intelligence, so too can dynamics offer a solution to the current limitations of autonomous generative music systems. By studying the biophysics of birdsong, a dynamics-based agent template is developed with particular focus given to the actuator
