Creativity, by which something new, original, and valuable is formed, has positive connotations. This volume features essays on creative processes in technological invention, engineering design, architecture, music composition, improvisation, sound recording, authenticity in music, and computer music. They deal with significant present-day as well as with historical issues of creativity. They explore what creative processes in different domains have in common, to what extent cognitive science can shed light on them and how they can be modelled. Contrary to some approaches in creativity studies, the authors, if ever possible, try to avoid speculation and come to empirically valid conclusions.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"As a resume of the book, one might use the metaphor of a mosaic. Like an image made from the assemblage of small pieces of different coloured materials, so is this volume composed of heterogeneous essays featuring different aspects, perspectives, and multidisciplinary approaches to creativity. But despite or probably for exactly that reason, the reader is able to get a glimpse of the essence of creative processes by composing an image of creativity by himself. Perhaps it is simplest to describe this book by remembering the definition of creativity which is given in the introduction: with this collaborative book something new, original, and valuable was formed - with positive connotations."
(Sonja Neumann, ICON 23/2017)
