How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

In this paper, we research rhetorical patterns from a musicological and computational standpoint. First, a theoretical examination of what constitutes a rhetorical pattern is conducted. Out of that examination, which includes primary sources and the study of the main composers, a formal definition of rhetorical patterns is proposed. Among the rheto...
Flamenco is widely practiced around the world, both in its musical and dance forms. It has been taught and studied through formal, non-formal, and informal teaching processes. Traditionally, it is taught through imitation and repetition and learned by ear. Zapateado is the percussive element of the dance. This study aimed to investigate whether a c...
Generating new music based on rules of counterpoint has been deeply studied in music informatics. In this article, we try to go further, exploring a method for generating new music based on the style of Palestrina, based on combining statistical generation and pattern discovery. A template piece is used for pattern discovery, and the patterns are s...
In this paper we study the role and usage of rhetorical patterns in the vocal polyphonic music in the Renaissance period. We describe the main rhetorical patterns found in the masterpieces of that period and present algorithms to automatically find those patterns. To test our algorithms a ground-truth set was created by manually annotating rhetoric...
In this paper, we explore a method for statistical generation of music based on the style of Palestrina. First, we find patterns in one piece that are selected and organized according to a probabilistic distribution, using horizontal viewpoints to describe melodic properties of events. Once the template is chosen and covered with patterns, two-voic...
Current software for Optical Music Recognition (OMR) produces outputs with too many errors that render it an unrealistic option for the production of a large corpus of symbolic music files. In this paper, we propose a system which applies image pre-processing techniques to scans of scores and combines the outputs of different commercial OMR program...
Large quantities of scanned music are now available in public digital music libraries. However, the information in such sources is represented as pixel data in images rather than symbolic information about the notes of a piece of music, and therefore it is opaque to musically meaningful computational processes (e.g., to search for a particular melo...
