Maximum entropy models capture melodic styles [article]

Jason Sakellariou, Francesca Tria, Vittorio Loreto, François Pachet
2016 arXiv   pre-print
Instead of using the n-body interactions of (n-1)-order Markov models, traditionally used in automatic music generation, we use a k-nearest neighbour model with pairwise interactions only.  ...  We introduce a Maximum Entropy model able to capture the statistics of melodies in music.  ...  A model that aims at imitating a given musical style should therefore be able to create music using existing melodic patterns and invented new ones in a way consistent with the corpus.  ...

Melodic analysis with segment classes

Darrell Conklin
2006 Machine Learning  
The representation is applied to sequential pattern discovery and to the statistical modeling of musical style.  ...  This paper presents a representation for melodic segment classes and applies it to music data mining. Melody is modeled as a sequence of segments, each segment being a sequence of notes.  ...  For music generation, they can be used for either style imitation (Conklin, 2003) or in real-time music improvisation systems (Assayag & Dubnov, 2004; Pachet, 2003) .  ...

STRICT AND FREE REVERSED: THE LAW OF COUNTERPOINT IN KOCH'S MUSIKALISCHES LEXIKON AND MOZART'S ZAUBERFLÖTE

KEITH CHAPIN
2006 Eighteenth-Century Music  
To show how a composer might write such music, he took a relatively consonant passage in the 'free' style, as he called it, and then ornamented it to create a 'strict' appearance.  ...  Musikalisches Lexikon (1802) Heinrich Christoph Koch described the intense, suspension-filled and motivically saturated style that he and his contemporaries knew from the music of J.  ...  'Bound' hearkened back to Zarlino's distinction between fuga legata and sciolta (or imitatione legata and sciolta) -strict and free fugue or imitation.  ...

Onset asynchrony in Western art music

Jonathan Dunsby, Yannis Rammos
2021 Quodlibet. Revista de Especialización Musical  
Finally, regarding the thinking that has predominated in musical performance studies in recent decades, with its emphasis on average practices and "ordinary" listeners, we suggest that a new emphasis will  ...  Melodic onset asynchrony, whereby the upper or some component of a musical simultaneity may strike the ear ahead of other sounds, is a common feature in the performance of Western art music.  ...  Beethoven's own, compositional dialogue between simultaneity and spread chords reaches a climax at the recapitulation (see figure 5 ), where he unpicks his opening chordal invention, and Lubin wisely  ...

Singing-driven interfaces for sound synthesizers

Jordi Janer, Xavier Serra
2008 Zenodo  
Digital musical instruments are usually decomposed in two main constituent parts: a user interface and a sound synthesis engine.  ...  Under the title of singing-driven interfaces, we aim to design systems that allow controlling the synthesis of musical instruments sounds with the singing voice.  ...  Most of the plucked string instruments are polyphonic, and both, the repertoire and typical playing styles make extensive use of this property (e.g. guitar strumming).  ...
