Abstract:

This multidisciplinary work aims to investigate the problem of the computer music analysis. It is based on the analysis of a computer music piece: Winter leaves, created in 1980 by Mauro Graziani at the CSC in Padova, using Music360 software. Listening, sonogram analysis and digital score analysis, represent the counterpart of the attempt to automatic analysing a fragment of computer music, a music which is characterized by “polyphony” of sound objects, any regular rhythm nor melody or timbre. Two researches (one with a Morphological Descriptor, the other with an algorithm which works via audio content and similarity computation) enlighten the practical problems analysis faces when it has to evaluate the difficult nature of this music.
