Augmented Creativity: Can chord recognition software be accurate enough for a complementary computationally generated tune to be created?

  • Sophie Berry The University of Derby

Abstract

This paper reviews the possibility of creativity being augmented through the use of a chord detection algorithm. In particular, it attempts to prove that the accuracy of a chord detection algorithm can be high enough to allow for the creation of a complementary melody. Software is written to test this theory, which uses concepts currently found throughout music composition and within audio related software, such as Fourier Transforms and ADSR Envelopes. The analysis of multiple questionnaires allowed for the proof that chord detection algorithms can be accurate enough to be used in melody creation.
