An Approach to Expressive Music Performance Modeling

Title An Approach to Expressive Music Performance Modeling
Publication Type Conference Paper
Year of Publication 2005
Conference Name 118th Audio Engineering Society Convention

Abstract We describe an approach for generating expressive music performances of monophonic Jazz melodies. The system consists of a melodic transcription component which extracts a set of acoustic features from monophonic recordings, a machine learning component which induce an expressive transformation model from the extracted acoustic features, and a melody synthesis component which generates expressive monophonic output from inexpressive melody descriptions using the induced expressive transformation model. This paper extends previous work by introducing an intra-note feature prediction model in the machine learning component.
