Applied Category Theory for the Musician

I noticed there are quite a few people with a musical background, so I thought I'd make a discussion group.

Enjoy!

    I recently discovered: Guerino Mazzola's The Topos of Music but haven't been able to take a look at it yet. It is availible an Springer Link provided you have access. Seems to apply catagorical concepts to mathematical music theory. There is a newer addition out as of this year, but not availible online yet. Hope this helps someone...

    I'm participating in the "Logic for Music" workshop at UNILOG 6. Nick Rossiter is giving a talk that he prepared with Michael Heater, Northumbria University, Newcastle, UK, “Musical Performance: a Composition of Monads”. He mentioned work by Guerino Mazzola and Moreno Andreatta on denotators, and by Alexandre Popoff, Carlos Agon, Moreno Andreatta, Andree Ehresmann on PK-nets.

    My own presentation is Musical Activity as the Basis for the Evolution of Joint Intentionality and Nonlinear Grammar. I think an important idea for category theory is that three distinct parsers are needed for intentionality.
