Fine, Wraps, octavo. vii, 399 pp. + CD-ROM. Machine Musicianship is both a programming tutorial and an exploration of the foundational concepts of musical analysis, performance, and composition. The theoretical foundations are derived from the fields of music theory, computer music, music cognition, and artificial intelligence. The book will be of interest to practitioners of those fields, as well as to performers and composers. The concepts are programmed using C++ and Max. The accompanying CD-ROM includes working versions of the examples, as well as source code and a hypertext document showing how the code leads to the programís musical functionality.

When my abodes prefixed time is spent, My cruel fayre streight bids me wend my way: but then from heauen most hideous stormes are sent as willing me against her will to stay. Whom then shalt I or heauen or her obay? the heauens know best what is the best for me: but as she will, whose will my life doth sway, my lower heauen, so it perforce must bee. But ye high heuens, that all this sorowe see, sith all your tempests cannot hold me backe: aswage your stormes, or else both you and she, will both together me too sorely wrack. Enough it is for one man to sustaine the stormes, which she alone on me doth raine.Edmund Spenser [1552–1599]
