Abstract:

Various attempts at automatic music composition systems have been made but they have not dealt with the issue of how to edit the composed piece by the user. In this paper, we propose a human-in-the-loop music composition system, where the manual editing stage is integrated into the composition process.  This system first generates a musical piece based on the lyrics input by the user. After that, the user can edit the melody and/or chord progression. The feature of this system is to regenerate, once the user edits the melody or chord progression of the generated piece, the remaining part so that it musically matches the edited part. With this feature, users can try various melodies and arrangements without taking into account the musical inconsistency between the melody and chord progression. We confirmed that this feature facilitated the user's trial and error in elaborating music.
