Hello,

I have created a computer program for automatic music composition. As the music perception is strongly subjective, I would like to know your opinion on this matter. I would like to know whether you can distinguish between real human-made music and the artifical computer-generated one.

Our algorithm uses a simplified music format to generate music. That is why it may sound artificial even if a human-made piece of music is being played. Please listen to these three well-known songs, so you will not be influenced by this limitation.

W. A. Mozart - Symphony No. 40
Simon & Garfunkel - The Sound of Silence
A.Dvořák - Humoresque No. 7

You will hear 10 short snippets of randomly chosen compositions. Please select how do you think it was made – if it is composed by a human or by a computer program. If a song seems to be familiar to you, please select the third option. Please also state how much do you like each song. The survey should not take longer than 5 minutes.
