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 program’s musical functionality.

The Burgundian Version
The peacock, sole of birds, does not make eggs. The peahen does not sit on them.They propagate through the eye of each other, narrowed in self-estimationto profit by iridescent tail.It is written that Satan invented this bird& clapped his own wings crying: I did it all with colors!*. . . *The man who looks like Jean Genet may be Gilles Binchois—admittedly a less familiar name but what is time for except to live in with such neighbors. Or William Dufay. Poet’s eye and butcher’s chin—evident musicians.Robert Kelly
