Long forms are only meant to express here musical form across several bars and whole movements, i.e. composition as it expresses itself in long spans of time. Once again it seems that I’m hitting the wall hard on how well I can express my thoughts publicly, but here goes:
What techniques are there in Computer-Assisted Composition (CAC) in order to help us sculpt/interpret the long form of musical pieces? I’ve struggled with this over the years, I know and employ several short-form techniques in my own compositional boutique but I’ve never been able to conceive of any long-form techniques.
Any hints and insights or free-floating thoughts on this issue would be much appreciated.
All the best,
