The present work proposes a model for a Multi-Agent System capable to deal with music. We believe that many Computer Music problems could be approached through such a Musical Multi-Agent System. Our proposal is based on a community of agents that interact through musical events (MIDI), simulating the behavior of a musical group. As a case study we have implemented a rhythmic accompaniment system. "Listening" to each other, the agents were able to play their instruments in synchronism.
