    Abstract:
    This chapter appeared in a volume that summarized the results of the three-year "Patterns of Intuition" project that Gerhard Nierhaus and others directed: the project investigated the creative act of composing by means of algorithmic composition. Central to the investigation were the compositional strategies of twelve composers, which were documented through a dialogic and cyclic process of modelling and evaluating musical materials. In the second part of the book contributions by various authors considered the project from different perspectives, offered independent approaches, or provided more general reflections from their respective research fields. The present chapter situates the project in the context of experimental practice in music, especially in the tradition of pragmatist aesthetics and education best represented in the writings of John Dewey.
