4.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating, Captain. January 16, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Music is a language, a language akin to mathematics, and as such is perfectly suited to being learned by the computer. Professor Cope has created EMI (Experiments in Musical Intelligence) which analyses and imitates familiar human composers (Bach, Chopin, Mozart, Beethoven and others). Like IBM's Big Blue chess-playing computer, EMI is inching closer and closer to equalling his human models -- and the computer learns faster and remembers perfectly.
Cope's first EMI disc, "Bach By Design" (1994) was all digital piano, and suffered a certain sameness of sound for it. Here he has wisely chosen human interpreters for EMI's scores, which breathes some additional life into the performances. In addition to piano (by Mary Jane Cope), one piece is performed by a Balinese gamelan orchestra, a couple feature a small string/wind ensemble, and five are by vocalist + piano.
In all, this disc is an effective shot across the bow announcing that, in the not-too-distant future, computer composition won't be the novelty it is today.

5.0 out of 5 stars ear candy August 3, 2013
Format:MP3 Music
David Cope is the ultimate musician. He will keep you entertained as you go from one song to the next as long as you listen. He has the voice, the sounds, the lyrics, and the power that is driving him to the top. You will never be bored with his music and you'll be sure find a song of his running through your head long after you've turned off your music.
Try it, you'll Love it!
