SAMPAIO, Pablo Azevedo; RAMALHO, Geber  and  TEDESCO, Patrícia. CinBalada: a multiagent rhythm factory. J. Braz. Comp. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.3, pp.31-49. ISSN 0104-6500.

CinBalada is a system for automatic creation of polyphonic rhythmic performances by mixing elements from different musical styles. This system is based on agents that act as musicians playing percussion instruments in a drum circle. Each agent has to choose from a database the rhythm pattern of its instrument that satisfies the "rhythmic role" assigned to him in order to produce a collectively-consistent rhythmic performance. A rhythmic role is a concept that we proposed here with the objective of representing culture-specific rules for creation of polyphonic performances.

Keywords : rhythm composition; rhythmic role; multiagent system.
