Guitar Transformer and Jazz Transformer

At the Yating Music Team of the Taiwan AI Labs, we are developing new music composing AI models extending from our previous Pop Music Transformer model (see the previous blog).  In October 2020, we are going to present two full papers documenting some of our latest result at the International Society for Music Information Retrieval […]

Pop Music Transformer: Beat-based Modeling and Generation of Expressive Pop Piano Compositions

Paper (ACM Multimedia 2020):  https://arxiv.org/abs/2002.00212 (pre-print) Code (GitHub):  https://github.com/YatingMusic/remi   We’ve developed Pop Music Transformer, a deep learning model that can generate pieces of expressive Pop piano music of several minutes.  Unlike existing models for music composition, our model learns to compose music over a metrical structure defined in terms of bars, beats, and sub-beats.  […]
