A harmonic analysis network

Ruhan Alpaydin, Guerino Mazzola

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Harmonic analysis of symbolic music provides useful insights into music composition and performance. Automation of harmonic analysis could provide further help in making the analysis process explicit, precise, and user-configurable. The HarmoRubette component in the RUBATO music software environment was developed for such purposes. We decomposed, redesigned and extended HarmoRubette into a Harmonic Analysis Network. We describe our tonality/Harmonic Analysis Network in detail and discuss two sample analyses with the network.
