  Description     : Common Music (CM) is an object-oriented music composition environment.

It produces sound by transforming a high-level representation of
musical structure into a variety of control protocols for sound
synthesis and display. Common Music defines an extensive library of
compositional tools and an API through which the composer can easily
modify and extend the system.

Common Music began in 1989 as a response to the proliferation of
different audio hardware, software and computers that resulted from
the introduction of low cost computers. As choices increased it became
clear that composers would be well served by a portable, powerful and
consistent interface to the myriad sound rendering possibilities. Work
on Common Music began in 1989 when the author was a guest composer at
CCRMA, Stanford University. Much of the system as it exists today was
implemented at the Institut fr Musik und Akustik at the Zentrum fr
Kunst und Medientechnologie in Karlsruhe, Germany, where the author
worked for five years. Common Music continues to evolve today at the
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, where the author is now an
associate professor of music composition.

Common Music works in conjunction with the following synthesis and
display options:
Csound (sound synthesis)
Fomus (music notation)
Common Lisp Music (sound synthesis)
Common Music Notation (music notation)
MIDI (synthesis control)
Midishare (MIDI I/O)
Plotter (data visualization)
Open Sound Control (synthesis control)
Supercollider (sound synthesis)
Portmidi (MIDI I/O)
RTS and Receive (real time extensions)
