Hey, Thank you!

Hi Pablo,

Look at David Cope's work with EMI (Electronic Musical Intelligence). He would create databases of scores in a particular genre, like Chopin Mazurkas, that EMI would use to create a new mazurka. With this case, and any case of composition, the starting pitch will depend a lot on the style of the composition. If it is a tonal piece in the style of the Classical period, it is likely to start on the tonic, mediant, or dominant. Romantic pieces often start on the dominant, leading tone, or supertonic as much as the tonic triad notes. And atonal pieces can start on any pitch.

Hello everyone!

I don't know if you remember me, I'm the crazy one trying to make the computer compose melodies =D

I'm going very fast and it seems that I'll finish my grad thesis soon... however I'm kind of stuck with one detail: The model that I'm using for the melodic contour, needs another model for the musical beginning because it's a conditional model based on the lasts notes that have been played.

I've heard of a study that analyzes a lot a scores in order to find some pattern in how music begins.

Does anyone know about that?

Thanks a lot!!
