Nemirovsky, Paul; Watson, Richard: Genetic Improvisation Model A Framework for Real-Time Performance Environments. In: EvoMUSART 2003, S. 510-521.



This paper presents the current state in an ongoing development of the Genetic Improvisation Model (GIM): a framework for the design of real-time improvisational systems. The aesthetic rationale for the model is presented, followed by a discussion of its general principles. A discussion of the Emonic Environment, a networked system for audiovisual creation built on GIM’s principles, follows.
