Abstract:Many systems have been proposed to encode music so as to allow manipulation in a computer. We suggest that this multiplicity of representation, which can be thought of as implicit in aspects of many previous approaches. In terms of this basic representation, we can then build up higher-level hierarchical representations, available for the purpose of analysis or compositional manipulation. We illustrate this approach by describing an algorithm for rhythmic analysis developed by Steedman, and an analytic procedure developed by Ruwet, both formulated within our representation.
