Strasheela 0.8.3 Released

United States
8 August 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.

This release greatly extends the available documentation. It now comes with a tutorial (draft) and includes several examples with musical output, an explanation of their underlying music theory, remarks on their implementation, and the full source code. Substantial background information on Strasheela is given by a monograph. Also, many additions and bugfixes have been made to the system.
