New Roles for Computer Musicians in S.T.E.A.M.Computation has long had a role in the musical arts, especially in musical composition. But how has music and the creative process informed the Information Sciences? What more can it do to enhance/inform/improve/innovate the information sciences (both theoretical and practical, science and business). To answer these questions, this paper gives an overview of the role of the creative process, esp. the role of music's creative process, in the in-formation science and technology disciplines.
The S.T.E.A.M. (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics) initiative has renewed the interest in the role of the arts in information science, and as part of that effort, this paper examines the direct role of a formally trained computer musician functioning as a faculty member within an information science and technology academic unit.
