Self-redundancy in Music

09291.ThorntonChris.Paper.2219.pdf (0.2 MB)


Where a structural analysis can be produced for a musical
artefact, variants of the artefact can often be obtained by
`inverting' the analysis, in much the same way we produce
novel sentences from a grammar. The paper describes use of
information theory for purposes of deriving structural
analyses of sequences, and shows how the method can be used
with musical data, for purposes of generating novel musical
