Automatic identification of high-level music-theoretic concepts

Wednesday 13 November 2019, 4.00PM to 5.30pm

Speaker(s): Tom Collins (University of York)

This talk will explore human attempts, and computational modelling of those attempts, to discover repetitive structure in music. I will touch on the myriad applications of this research: investigating how much composers borrow from themselves and others; modelling Gjerdingen's work on musical schemata theory; generating music in a target style; predicting continuations of incomplete passages. The second half of the talk will introduce some web-based interfaces for making, sharing, and understanding music.

Please note the change in venue.

Location: Rymer Auditorium, Campus West
