Many problems concerning the theory and technology of rhythm, melody, and voice-leading are fundamentally geometric in nature. It is therefore not surprising that the field of computational geometry can contribute greatly to these problems. The interaction between computational geometry and music yields new insights into the theories of rhythm, melody, and voice-leading, as well as new problems for research in several areas, ranging from mathematics and computer science to music theory, music… CONTINUE READING
