Our Approach

Part of the Computational Music Science book series (CMS)


This chapter presents two versions of our approach to creativity. First (section 19.1) we discuss this approach from a semiotic point of view. This is also the more accessible presentation since it does not rely on mathematical formalism. It is however connected to the second version (section 19.2) which relies on category theory. This means that both versions have corresponding components, but the mathematical one shows them as processes that are formalized in terms of functors.
