is creating Computer Aided Algorithmic Composition software

About The MAIDENS Project

I am Claudius Iacob, a musician and a programmer, and I build MAIDENS, a piece of software that generates music structures based on algorithms.

MAIDENS is a CAAC – Computer Aided Algorithmic Composition – a software program that aims to combine the features of a notation editor and a responsive, AI-based musical material generator. Its primary aim is to enable an educated art music composer to generate partial musical structures, which can be intertwined in a composition.

Kick-Starts Your Imagination
Helps you get faster past the blank page

The main target audience of the program are contemporary art composers. They can use the program to delegate some of the technicalities of music writing, or to explore new realms of artistic expression.

Built-in Music Notation Editor
Provides onsite music input and adjustment,
for less app switching while you compose

Currently the application is undergoing heavy development and frequent revamp cycles.  Available versions, while incomplete and rather unstable, are yet potentially useful.

Converts to a Number of Music Formats
Gives you the option to further refine your work in other software,
while keeping your workflow and habits

MAIDENS is a personal, not funded academic project. In fact, it is a by-product of my PhD thesis on algorithmic aspects in musical composition at the National University of Music in Bucharest.

If you are an enthusiast of music and computers, as I am, please support me in this fascinating journey that combines both. Even the smallest amount of money you donate to the project can make a huge difference toward rendering the application the best music composition tool that you ever had.
