  abstract =     "Grammatical evolution may be applied to the domain of
                 automatic composition. Our goal is to test this
                 technique as an alternate tool for automatic
                 composition. The AP440 auxiliary processor will be used
                 to play music, thus we shall use a grammar that
                 generates AP440 melodies. Grammar evolution will use
                 fitness functions defined from several well-known
                 single melodies to automatically generate AP440
                 compositions that are expected to sound like those
                 composed by human musicians.",
