Finding structure in music

My PhD thesis is about the finding of structure in musical pieces. Creating methods that can recognize repetition, transformations and discontinuities on a micro and macro-temporal scale. The use of Python allows for a stable framework in which several methods of analysis can be combined. One of the methods currently being investigated is the continuation of the results from the structural information theory, in particular by the modification of a genetic algorithm previously used to find structure in linear line patterns.

Keywords: Music analysis, finding similarity, Python, Structural Information Theory, Genetic Programming
