Expectation-based parser for music

Séminaire de Ken Satoh | Vendredi 16 septembre 2022

Séminaire en anglais organisé par Ken Satoh, Professeur, Institut National d'Informatique, Fellow 2022 Fondation France-Japon EHESS / Air Liquide, avec Prof. Tojo, JAIST (Japan Advanced Institute of Science and Technology).


There have been proposed many grammar theories of music in comparison to language, and thus, the syntax has also been shown in tree. In their parsing processes, trees are usually constructed by the generative rules given the whole span of a music piece in top-down manner. In this paper, we propose an incremental parser of music, from the left to the right of the scores, building partial trees. In this process, we can predict the succeeding phrase from the beginning part. Therefore, the generation process of the tree itself represents our human expectation process of music. We apply our method to jazz music represented by chord sequences, implement the parser, and exemplify the incremental generating process in several standard pieces.
