Abstract: A survey of research into automated and semi automated computer systems for computer systems for expressive performance of music. The performers’ changes in tempo and dynamics allow them to express a fixed score, hence the term expressive performance. When computers play their stored tunes, the performances sounded robotic. From the end of the 1980’s on, there was an increasing interest in automated and semi automated computer systems for expressive music performances (CSEMPs). A CSEMP is a computer system able to generate expressive performance of music. Each CSEMP is grouped according to how their performance knowledge is built- that is, by learning method. Here in this seminar, I will be dealing with one such CSEMP called “Director Musices”(DM) which has been an ongoing project since 1982. It is a non learning system which uses pre defined set of rules for generating a performance. There have been significant achievements in the field of simulating human musical performances in the last 25 years and there are many opportunities ahead for further improvements in simulation. The areas of expressive representation and polyphonic performances appear to be moving forward.
