Using Aspects to Help Composers

Hill, Patrick; Holland, Simon and Laney, Robin C. (2003). Using Aspects to Help Composers. Technical Report 2003/21; Department of Computing, The Open University.



Current AOP and related research has largely focussed on the development of technologies that assist software engineering practitioners in the separation and composition of various dimensions of concern across a range of software engineering tasks. In this paper we argue that the principles of AOP might also be usefully applied in supporting user interaction with software systems that aim to support multidimensional, non-linear, creative processes such as music composition. We support our argument with two concrete examples of AOP approaches applied to a musical context.
