Hiller was aided in the Computer Cantata by a graduate student in composition named Robert A. Baker,
who was assisting Hiller with a project to create the first computer-based music notation system, the
Musicwriter. This program was written for the ILLIAC I computer, and worked in conjunction with a music
typewriter made by Cecil Effinger that could input and output paper tape.
