Pushing the Boundaries of Musical Expression

An International Conference on Research in Music and Creativity November 29 - Dec 1 2017, Bar Ilan University, Israel

We ask broad questions that over time we expect
will become an important foundation of our research:
Are there common generative mechanisms in music and mind that can account for the extreme diversity in music across culture and genre, could they be modeled within a new predictive theory, what it would take to get there, and if so,
what are the implications on art, science, and creative expression?
