The main activities in music studies concern den- ing structures and studying relationships among them. Com- puters could be very useful in performing these tasks. This paper discusses the representation of musical concepts for reasoning tasks which are common in the analysis and composition of musical works. We argue in favour of the following properties in our representation framework: abstraction, expressiveness, multiple views and reasoning efciency . Then we discuss some examples of the…

TLDR
To overcome the intractability problem, this report proposes a careful knowledge engineering approach that offers a useful language specialized for the chorale harmonization task through its three primitives, namely: rules, tests and measures.

TLDR
This thesis examines the ways in which abstraction mechanisms present in music production systems interplay with producers' activity through a collective case study of seventeen professional producers.

An Expert System for Harmonizing Four-Part Chorales
TLDR
Quite a few trends in algorithmic composition today are based on a streamlined formalism, for example, in the form of random generation of note attributes using elegant statistical distributions, terse and powerful formal grammars, or generalizations of serial composition procedures.
Investigating the Influence of Representations and Algorithms in Music Classification
TLDR
This paper investigates how variations in the representation of the musical segments and in the categorisation algorithm influence the outcome of the classification, and shows that an appropriate choice of features can yield results that are very similar to a human classification.
