What Is MAIDENS
MAIDENS is a CAAC – Computer Aided Algorithmic Composition – a software program that aims to combine the features of a notation editor and a responsive, AI-based musical material generator.
Who Is it For
The main target audience is contemporary art composers. They can use the program to delegate some of the technicalities of music writing, or to explore new realms of artistic expression.
Who Built it And Why
Claudius Iacob, a programmer and composer, built MAIDENS as a by-product of his PhD thesis on algorithmic aspects in musical composition, now ongoing at the National University of Music in Bucharest.
What Is the Status
Application is undergoing heavy development and frequent revamp cycles. Available versions are incomplete and rather unstable – yet, potentially useful. Progress can be tracked using JIRA.
I’d gladly use the program as a pre-composition tool: to generate melodic and rhythmic series, to proliferate harmonic stems (…)Dan Dediu
