Iamus by Iamus

Iamus is a computer in the University of Málaga that composes contemporary classical music without any human help. Its first studio album ‘Iamus’ was released in 2012. This album was composed by only a computer and recorded and played by London Symphony Orchestra. This album is composed utilizing ‘melodics’ which is a computational system based on bioinspired algorithm generating musical composition without human input. Also, Iamus evolves composition in itself.

I was surprised that this computer composes full pieces of complex classical music not just a piece of some melodies. Because it is so good at composing music without human input, people can easily think that computer would replace human musicians in the future. But, it also might be a really nice tool for human musicians to develop a new musical invention.
