Present Approaches

Part of the Computational Music Science book series (CMS)


Since we are proposing strategies and tools for being creative, it is necessary to briefly focus on contemporary theories that deal with describing the creative process. Before giving an overview of such theories, we will come back to the questions asked in the introduction to this section and attempt to give present-day answers to them that also reflect our view presented in this book.
