A Mixed Graphical Model for Rhythmic Parsing

  title={A Mixed Graphical Model for Rhythmic Parsing},
  author={Christopher Raphael},
A method is presented for the rhythmic parsing problem: Given a sequence of observed musical note onset times, we estimate the corresponding notated rhythm and tempo process. A graphical model is developed that represents the simultaneous evolution of tempo and rhythm and relates these hidden quantities to observations. The rhythm variables are discrete and the tempo and observation variables are continuous. We show how to compute the globally most likely configuration of the tempo and rhythm… CONTINUE READING
