Evolutionary Computer Music

This book discusses the applications of evolutionary computation to music and the tools needed to create and study such systems. These tools can be combined to create surrogate artificial worlds populated by interacting simulated organisms in which complex musical experiments can be performed. The book demonstrates that evolutionary systems can be used to create and to study musical compositions and cultures in ways that have never before been achieved.

Great book for people interested in computational composition. A good collection of articles with many samples. A good introductory chapter plus a few hands-on examples can make it perfect.
