Relational poly-Klumpenhouwer networks for transformational and voice-leading analysis

- Computer Science
- 2018

The present article proposes a new framework called relational PK-nets, an extension of the previous work on poly-Klumpenhouwer networks (PK-nets), in which diagrams in sets are considered rather than functors in sets.

Meter networks: a categorical framework for metrical analysis

- MathematicsJournal of Mathematics and Music
- 2020

A framework based on category theory which unifies the simultaneous consideration of timepoints, metrical relations, and meter inclusion founded on the category Rel of sets and binary relations is developed.

On the use of relational presheaves in transformational music theory

- MathematicsJournal of Mathematics and Music
- 2020

Traditional transformational music theory describes transformations between musical elements as functions between sets and studies their subsequent algebraic properties and their use for music…

Groupoids and Wreath Products of Musical Transformations: A Categorical Approach from poly-Klumpenhouwer Networks

- Computer ScienceMCM
- 2019

This work proposes a new groupoid-based approach to transformational music theory, in which transformations of PK-nets are considered rather than ordinary sets of musical objects.

Tropical Generalized Interval Systems

- MathematicsMCM
- 2019

The impossibility to build tropical GIS in the finite case is finally proven and discussed and a new framework allows to broaden the GIS model introducing a new operation and consequently new musical and conceptual insights and applications.

From Music to Mathematics and Backwards: Introducing Algebra, Topology and Category Theory into Computational Musicology

- Art
- 2018

Despite a long historical relationship between mathematics and music, the interest of mathematicians is a recent phenomenon. In contrast to statistical methods and signal-based approaches currently…

Opycleid: A Python package for transformational music theory

- ArtJ. Open Source Softw.
- 2018

Transformational music theory has progressively shifted the music-theoretical and analytical process from an “object-oriented” point of view to one where the transformations between musical elements are emphasized.

Relational PK-Nets for Transformational Music Analysis

- Computer Science
- 2016

This work proposes a new framework called relational PK-Nets, an extension of their previous work on Poly-Klumpenhouwer networks, in which they consider diagrams in $\mathbf{Rel}$ rather than $\Mathbf{Sets}$.

Klumpenhouwer Networks and Some Isographies that Involve Them

- Mathematics
- 1990

Networks involving T and I operations are useful for interpreting pcsets, and for other purposes. Certain groups of isographies among such networks, being isomorphic to the T/I group itself, are…

A Categorical Generalization of Klumpenhouwer Networks

- Computer ScienceMCM
- 2015

This article proposes a functorial framework for generalizing some constructions of transformational theory via the concept of set-valued poly-K-nets (henceforth PK-nets), focusing on Klumpenhouwer Networks.

Morphisms of generalized interval systems and PR-groups

- Mathematics
- 2012

We begin the development of a categorical perspective on the theory of generalized interval systems (GISs). Morphisms of GISs allow the analyst to move between multiple interval systems and connect…
