  abstract =     "Evolutionary algorithms have frequently been applied
                 in the field of computer-generated art. In this paper,
                 a novel approach in the domain of automated music
                 composition is proposed. It is inspired by genetic
                 programming and uses a tree-based domain model of
                 compositions. The model represents musical pieces as a
                 set of constraints changing over time, forming musical
                 contexts allowing to compose, reuse and reshape musical
                 fragments. The system implements a multi-objective
                 optimisation aiming for statistical measures and
                 structural features of evolved models. Furthermore a
                 correspondent domain-specific computer language is
                 introduced used to transform domain models to a
                 comprehensive, human-readable text representation and
                 vice versa. The language is also suitable to limit the
                 search space of the evolution and as a composition
                 language for human composers.",
