Abstract:

Chord symbols and progressions are a common way to de- scribe musical harmony. In this paper we present SEQ, a pattern representation using the Web Ontology Language OWL DL and its application to modelling chord sequences. SEQ provides a logical representation of order informa- tion, which is not available directly in OWL DL, together with an intuitive notation. It therefore allows the use of OWL reasoners for tasks such as classification of sequences by patterns and determining subsumption relationships be- tween the patterns. The S E Q representation is used to
