Strasheela 0.8.2 Music Composition System Released

United States
1st January 2007 — Strasheela is a highly expressive constraint-based music composition system. Users declaratively state a music theory and the computer generates music which complies with this theory. A theory is formulated as a constraint satisfaction problem (CSP) by a set of rules (constraints) applied to a music representation in which some aspects are expressed by variables (unknowns). Music constraint programming is style-independent and is well-suited for highly complex theories (e.g. a fully-fledged theory of harmony). Results can be output into various formats including MIDI, Lilypond, and Csound.

For Strasheela 0.8.2, the interface to Common Lisp and other composition systems implemented in Lisp (e.g. Common Music and PWGL) has been improved. The Strasheela component OzServer (which makes Strasheela usable as a server by other applications) has been revised and a Lisp client was added. Further extensions have been added as well and bug fixes have been done.
