On the Stylistic Evolution of a Society of Virtual Melody Composers [chapter]

Valerio Velardo, Mauro Vallati
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An extensive validation, performed by using both quantitative and qualitative analyses, confirms that the system is able to evolve its compositional style over time.  ...  The method has been extensively validated using quantitative analysis and music experts. Results suggest that the system effectively evolve its own compositional style.  ...  Over 60% of the experiments have the stle of melodies converging towards a precise point of the melodic style phase space. However, before converging melodies visit small regions of the phase space.  ...

2012 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, a genetic algorithm approach to generating contrapuntal melodies is explained, with a description of the various musical heuristics used and of how variable-length chromosome strings are  ...  used to avoid generating "jerky" rhythms and melodic phrases, as well as how subjectivity is incorporated into the algorithm's fitness measures.  ...  Various genetic algorithms using the deterministic rules of first species counterpoint to objectively evaluate a given melody's fitness have been developed [1, 3] .  ...

Probabilistic Harmonization With Fixed Intermediate Chord Constraints

Maximos Kaliakatsos-Papakostas, Emilios Cambouropoulos
2014 Proceedings of the SMC Conferences  
A similar approach to the rule-based methodologies is the one followed by systems that utilize genetic algorithms (GA), like the ones shortly reviewed in the recent paper [3] and, also, in [4] .  ...  The approach followed therein is equivalent to the one described in Section 3.1 (and in Equation 1), which is also used as a starting point towards the formalization of the BCHMM.  ...

Perceptual vs. automated judgements of music copyright infringement

Yuchen Yuan, Sho Oishi, Charles Cronin, Daniel Müllensiefen, Quentin Atkinson, Shinya Fujii, Patrick E. Savage
2020 Zenodo  
Automated algorithms designed to calculate melodic and audio similarity pro-duced comparable results: both algorithms were able to match past decisions with identical accuracy of 71% (12/17 cases).  ...  Analysis of cases that were difficult to classify suggests that melody, lyrics, and other factors sometimes interact in complex ways difficult to capture using quantitative metrics.  ...  Savage et al. later developed a Percent Melodic Identity (PMI) method for quantifying melodic evolution based on automatic sequence alignment algorithms used in molecular genetics to measure melodic similarity  ...
