In this paper we examine the utility of a certain type of learning techniques that are based on information-theoretic methods for music modeling. Using universal compression algorithms we apply the notion of entropy to characterize sequences in terms of their statistical source coding. This approach provides powerful methods for generation and comparison of sequences without any explicit knowledge of their statistical source. The method was applied for automatic extraction and aleatoric… CONTINUE READING
