  abstract =     "The efficient specification of aesthetic measures for
                 music as a part of modelling human conception of sound
                 is a challenging task and has motivated several
                 research works. It is not only targeted to the creation
                 of automatic music composers and raters, but also
                 reinforces the research for a deeper understanding of
                 human noesis. The aim of this work is twofold: first,
                 it proposes an Interactive Evolution system that uses
                 Genetic Programming to evolve simple 8-bit melodies.
                 The results obtained by subjective tests indicate that
                 evolution is driven towards more user-preferable
                 sounds. In turn, by monitoring features of the melodies
                 in different evolution stages, indications are provided
                 that some sound features may subsume information about
                 aesthetic criteria. The results are promising and
                 signify that further study of aesthetic preference
                 through Interactive Evolution may accelerate the
                 progress towards defining aesthetic measures for sound
                 and music.",
