The Bay Area Computer Music Technology MeetUp is having an event tomorrow April 5 at the CCRMA laboratories at Stanford. See

http://www.meetup.com/barcmut/calendar/12355060/?a=nr1p_grp&rv=nr1p

for details.

I've been interested in electronic music since I was 15 and music synthesizers since they appeared and I had one of the first DX7's in the US. DX7 was the first commercial instrument that used FM synthesis which was invented by John Chowning at CCRMA, where this event is held. So one reason for me to attend is that I get to visit CCRMA, and in fact John Chowning himself is signed up for this meetup so perhaps I get to meet him also.

David Cope is the creator of EMI - an algorithmic music composition program that creates music so good that it has made Douglas Hofstadter question the superiority of humans in this space. Read the fascinating essay at

This is current AI at its finest and might therefore be of interest to you.
