Albert Herring synopsis:
For years the straight-laced town leaders have chosen a sweet young thing to represent pure virtue at the annual Spring Festival. This year they can’t find a girl without moral blemishes, so instead of a queen they name as “King of the May” young Albert Herring, a timid clerk in his mother’s shop. When his buddies spike his punch at the Coronation Banquet, Albert goes on an uncharacteristic bender and can’t be found the next morning — much to the dismay of the townsfolk.

Students will learn about Markov-based rules programs, genetic algorithms, and software modeled on the Experiments in Musical Intelligence program. Music analysis software and techniques will also be covered in depth. Many compositional approaches will be discussed in detail, including rules-based techniques, data-driven models, genetic algorithms, neural networks, fuzzy logic, mathematical modeling, and sonification.
