• Began neural network engine

Notes from Cope on EMMY

  • Lazy voice-leading for high parts
  • Separate composition into “beats”
  • Make vertical lexicons
  • Look at next lexicon, use voice-leading
  • Essentially a first-order Markov analysis of grouped “lexicons”
  • To give the impression of higher-level structure
    • Put more information into lexicons
    • Contextual information (where is the lexicon supposed to go?)
  • Roughly 2% of EMMY is actual music-composition related
