Kopparti, R. M. & Weyde, T. ORCID: 0000-0001-8028-9905 (2019). Modeling Interval Relations for Neural Language models. Machine Learning for Music Discovery, ICML, Long Beach, June 9-15, 2019, 97,


In this study, we explore the use of modellingof pitch intervals and interval relations in pitchwith neural networks. Intervals and their relationsare essential features of music, but in neural net-works, the trend is to use raw data as input andnot to model any higher level aspects of the music.We propose to use Relation Based Patterns (RBP)to integrate intervals (early and mid fusion) andinterval relations (late fusion) into the networkstructure. We observe significant improvementsin pitch prediction for the Essen Folk Song Col-lection for RBP over standard networks, and formixed over unsigned and signed interval represen-tation.
