In a guest lecture for the iSchool the course "Introduction to Computer Music,” David Rosenboom will focus on ideas that have informed his use of computer music software tools designed to bring algorithmic music composition methods into real-time performance. An influential historical tool, Hierarchical Music Specification Language (HMSL), developed by Phil Burk, Larry Polansky, and David Rosenboom in the 1980s will serve as a launching pad for discussion, from which Rosenboom will expand into a landscape of related tools developed since that time, illustrated with examples of his music. Speculations about future developments will ensue, and interactive discussion is encouraged.
