AbstractIn this paper we describe a machine learning approach to one of the most challenging aspects of computer music modeling the knowledge applied by a musician when performing a score in order to produce an expressive performance of a piece. We apply machine learning techniques to a set of monophonic recordings of Jazz standards in order to induce both rules and a numeric model for expressive performance.
We implement a tool for automatic expressive performance transformations of Jazz melodies using the induced knowledge.
