This three hours tutorial aims at introducing the field of musical metacreation (MUME) and its current developments, promises, and challenges, with a particular focus on NIME-relevant aspects of the field.

Thanks to continued progress in artistic and scientific research, a new possibility has emerged in our musical relationship with technology: Musical Metacreation. MUME involves using tools and techniques from artificial intelligence, artificial life, and machine learning, themselves often inspired by cognitive and life sciences, to endow machines with musical creativity. Concretely, it brings together artists, practitioners and researchers interested in developing systems that autonomously (or interactively) recognize, learn, represent, compose, complete, accompany, or interpret musical data.

Besides introducing the field of musical metacreation (MUME) and its current developments, the tutorial will bring to the front NIME-relevant aspects of the field, such as: musical interfaces for the collaboration between human performers and creative software "partners", the development of interfaces and instrument that foster and support computer-assisted musical creativity.
