In this post I mainly want to collect resources that I have found interesting.
Neural Nets for Generating Music. A historical perspective, from Chinese wind chimes to Markov chains, to recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and beyond. e.g, Convolutional Neural Networks, which are supposedly able to capture/produce higher-level structure. Referenced in this article is Andrey Karpathy’s post, The Unreasonable Effectiveness of Recurrent Neural Networks. Here is one example of an RNN composition:I like this taal, but would like to see more of a “build” in the piece.
