Much can be learnt from the inter-disciplinary study of music and language through the common medium of human creativity. Intriguing neurological evidence links music and language processing in the brain, illustrating the strong overlap between these very human activities. A newly flourishing field within cognitive science and artificial intelligence considers creativity as a computational phenomenon: capturing the vagaries of a seemingly free and unconstrained human activity into a formally modelled set of observations and structures. This work draws on the literatures on music, linguistics and creativity to compare computational approaches to generative creativity, both from a theoretical standpoint and in practice. We explore the cross-application of linguistic generative models to the domain of music creativity, combining knowledge from both language and music to further our understanding of human creativity.
