This study investigated the influence of two music elements, mode and rhythm, on melodic imagery. By modulating different parameters of mode and rhythm, this study produced various melody samples. Kansei engineering was adopted as a research method for designing the experimental process. A set of music assessment rules was established by regularizing the(More)
Many network information theory problems face the similar difficulty of single letter-ization. We argue that this is due to the lack of a geometric structure on the space of probability distributions. In this thesis, we develop such a structure by assuming that the distributions of interest are all close to each other. Under this assumption, the(More)
The paper discussed the integration of the automatic composing and singing voice synthesis systems, to let the computer can compose a new song and sing in Taiwanese. First, the automatic composer system analyzes 10 Tai-wanese popular songs through a first-order Markov chain and establishes the probability transition matrixes of the pitch and the duration.(More)
Automated music composition and algorithmic composition are based on the logic operation with music parameters being set according to the desired music style or emotion. The computer generative music can be integrated with other domains using proper mapping techniques, such as the intermedia arts with music technology. This paper mainly discusses the(More)
