Ryosuke Yamanishi, Keisuke Akita, Shohei Kato: Automated Composing System for Sub-melody Using HMM: A Support System for Composing Music, Proc. of 9th International Conference on Entertainment Computing, 6243, pp.425-427, 2010年9月

We propose an automated composing system for sub-melodies focusing especially on pitch and rhythm. We constructed the system using a Hidden Markov Model (HMM). In a composing experiment, we obtained various melodies depending on the song set used for learning, and the results suggest that this system can learn the features of song sets that are selected while considering music genres, music culture, or nuances of composers.
