Proceedings of the 17th International Society for Music Information Retrieval Conference Late-breaking/Demo Session (ISMIR-LBD 2016)
We designed a Web-based, piano-roll interface using the
and embedded a Music Information Retrieval (MIR) tech-
nology for automatic note/chord suggestion that extends
what a user has already written.
In a preliminary investi-
gation, composers used the interface to devise two loops in
the style of electronic dance music (EDM) ? one loop with
and one loop without the ?suggest? button. Users reported
enjoying the suggestion functionality (mean rating 5.167
on a scale 1?7,
= 1.528), and time-lapse composition
edits revealed that suggestion requests accounted for ap-
proximately 15% of user actions. Investigations are under-
way as to whether the suggestion functionality enhances
the perceived creativity of user compositions, in a study
where EDM listeners rate finished loops. Attendees of the
demo session will be able to listen to composed loops and
try out the interface for themselves.
