Temporal Patterns in Polyphony

Abstract

This paper formally characterizes the expressiveness of three approaches for polyphonic pattern representation and matching: R (relational patterns); H (Humdrum); and SPP (Structured Polyphonic Patterns). Relational networks have the highest expressiveness but H and SPP admit faster matching algorithms. It is shown how H and SPP can be cast as different… (More)
