Example text

These evocations might include associations, emotions, or ideas. To use our analogy with number sequences, a ten digit number sequence might be understood by listing its evocations as a telephone number, for example, associations involving the person whose telephone number it is. To make this mode of understanding precise, it is necessary to (1) specify the aspects of an object which are of interest and (2) specify the conventions by which those aspects evoke associations, emotions, or ideas. In criticism algorithms and design algorithms, the specification of the aspects of an object which are of interest is given by the description of the object.

The first tone in the sequence is encoded by an asterisk (*). Each subsequent tone is encoded by U, R, or D, depending on whether it is higher than the preceding tone, repeats the preceding tone, or is lower than the preceding tone. " For example, the URD-description of the first sixteen notes of "God Save the Queen" is *RUDUUURUDDDUDDU. The URD-description of the opening sixteen notes of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in C Minor is *RRDURRDURRDURRD. This method of describing sequences of sixteen tones is well defined but is rather coarse in the informational sense.

1 For example, the number sequence 1, 4, 9, 16, 25 . . can be understood by giving the rule "fit) = / 2 . " This paradigm can be used for understanding any object. Intuitively, an object is understood by giving the information, for example, rules, that can be used to generate the aspects of the object that are of interest, that tells how the object is put together in terms of those aspects. To apply this paradigm precisely, it is necessary to (1) specify the aspects of the object which are of interest and (2) specify the conventions by which the information is used to generate the specification of those aspects.
