Abstract: One area of research interest in computational creativity is the development of interactive music systems that are able to perform variant valid accompaniment for the same lead performance. Although previous work has tried to solve this problem, success has been limited. This work goes beyond the existing work by proposing a model of choice generation and selection for generating multiple valid accompaniments for the same lead performance in a Carnatic improvisational ensemble. The research proceeded in three stages. First, Carnatic music performances were analyzed to create the tension model. Second, based on the tension model, a software synthesis system that generates multiple accompaniment to the same lead performance, was implemented. Third, the results of the synthesis were evaluated through an user study with six expert participants. The main contribution of this thesis is the development and validation of a tension model that generates alternate valid variations of secondary accompaniment for the same lead input.
