|Title:||AAIM: Algorithmically Assisted Improvised Music|
|Abstract:||The AAIM (Algorithmically Assisted Improvised Music) performance system is a portfolio of interconnectable algorithmic software modules, designed to facilitate improvisation and live performance of electronic music. The AAIM system makes no attempt to generate new materials in one particular style, nor to act as an autonomous improviser. Instead, the goal of the AAIM system is to facilitate improvisation through the variation and manipulation of composed materials entered by the user. By generating these variations algorithmically, the system gives improvisers of computer music the ability to focus on macro elements of their performances, such as form, phrasing, texture, spatialisation, and timbre, while still enabling them to incorporate the rhythmic and melodic variations of a virtuosic instrumental improviser.|
