An 11-year-old girl contracted pneumonia with consolidation of the left lower lobe, infiltrates in the lingula and left upper lobe, and a large left pleural effusion, accompanied by a Mycoplasma complement-fixation titer increasing to 1:16,384. Serial chest radiographs demonstrated resolution of the pneumonia and effusion, followed by development of a… (More)
OBJECTIVE To describe subtle nasal deformities and microform cleft lips in parents whose children have complete cleft lip deformities. DESIGN Clinical analyses of three parents whose children had complete cleft lips. Subtle nasal deformities and microform cleft lips were identified. SETTING An institutional general hospital: Manuel Gea González Cleft… (More)
The automatic orchestration problem is that of assigning instruments or sounds to the notes of an unorchestrated score. This is related to, but distinct from, problems of automatic expressive interpretation. A simple algorithm is described that successfully orchestrates scores based on analysis of one musical structure – the “Z-chain.” One way for an… (More)
We address the problem of autonomously generating original music in a dual system, comprising a generative and analytic module—a “listener.” The analytic system implements a novel detailed theory of music, involving the recursive application of the concepts of shape, pattern, and motion.
Automatic arrangement is the problem of transforming an input score into a full orchestration, e.g. realized with samples. A subproblem, on which arrangement depends, is to establish the dynamic levels of individual parts, their articulations, and how parts are to align. A new kind of structural analysis is described: the interpretation of music means the… (More)
Musical meta-creation is an artistic and technical field in which the results (i.e. music) often cannot be empirically tested. The processes by which music is generated, however, afford a rational level of discourse. This paper suggests ways in which we might orient our discussion and our system-building in order to explore musical possibility and use… (More)
We describe a computational project concerning labeling of dissonance treatments – schematic descriptions of the uses of dissonances. We use automatic score annotation and database methods to develop schemata for a large corpus of 16th-century polyphonic music. We then apply structural techniques to investigate coincidence of schemata, and to extrapolate… (More)
Although patients with heart disease have successfully completed marathon runs, the immediate cardiac effects of similar and greater distance endurance exercise competition are unknown. Two such cases are presented, demonstrating that vigorous exercise and extreme levels of fitness are not precluded in the cardiac patient.
Jack 1 is an original meta-music piece which randomly builds a multilevel data structure to generate, extend and sequence musical shapes. Jack 1 is presented as an experiment in generating high-level, engaging music using simple ideas about pattern, shape and supershape, growth, and formal zoning.
