Artificial Intelligence in Music, Sound, Art and Design

Although the use of Artificial Intelligence for artistic purposes can be traced back to the 1970s, the use of Artificial Intelligence for the development of artistic systems is a recent, exciting and significant area of research. There is a growing interest in the application of these techniques in fields such as: visual art and music generation, analysis and interpretation; sound synthesis; architecture; video; poetry; design; and other creative tasks.

The main goal of EvoMUSART 2023 was to bring together researchers who are using Artificial Intelligence techniques for artistic tasks, providing the opportunity to promote, present and discuss ongoing work in the area. As always, the atmosphere was fun, friendly and constructive.

EvoMUSART has grown steadily since its first edition in 2003 in Essex, UK, when it was one of the Applications of Evolutionary Computing workshops. Since 2012, it has been a full conference as part of the Evo* co-located events.

EvoMUSART 2023 received 55 submissions. The peer-review process was rigorous and double-blind. The international Programme Committee, listed below,was composed of 63 members from 19 countries. EvoMUSART continues to provide useful feedback to authors: among the papers sent for full review, there were on average 3 reviews per paper. The number of accepted papers was 20 long talks (36% acceptance rate) and 7 posters accompanied by short talks, meaning an overall acceptance rate of 49%. As always, the EvoMUSART proceedings cover a wide range of topics and application areas, including generative approaches to music, visual art and design. This volume of proceedings collects the accepted papers.

As in previous years, the standard of submissions was high and good quality papers had to be rejected.We thank all authors for submitting their work, including those whose work was not accepted for presentation on this occasion.

The work of reviewing is done voluntarily and generally with little official recognition from the institutions where reviewers are employed. Nevertheless, professional reviewing is essential to a healthy conference. Therefore we particularly thank the members of the Programme Committee for their hard work and professionalism in providing constructive and fair reviews.
