Links: Music generated (or partly generated) by software

Music

Here's an interesting article I found today:

Deep-Learning Machine Listens to Bach, Then Writes Its Own Music in the Same Style
(Dec. 14, 2016 from TechnologyReview.com)


And here's an impressive example of that music on YouTube:

DeepBach: harmonization in the style of Bach generated using deep learning




I was hoping there was source code available for that software, so, I googled for "bach source code deep learning". Didn't find the above project's source code, but, I found this:

BachBot.com

BachBot is a free (as in freedom), libre, open source project with a code repository on GitHub.

I tried the BachBot Challenge and got only 40% correct the first time, but 100% the second time, when I started listening more carefully for anything particularly un-Bach-like, such as off-key-sounding notes.




Another interesting page:

Analyzing Six Deep Learning Tools for Music Generation
(Oct. 5, 2016 from AsimovInstitute.org)




I especially enjoyed the examples from Flow-Machines.com.

Two of those tracks are also on SoundCloud, which I'm assuming might have better audio quality than YouTube.
