High School Senior, Horace Mann School


Andrew Caosun is a senior at Horace Mann School. He’s been actively involved with Concerts in Motion since middle school, spending Sunday afternoons singing with seniors in nursing homes, and has also participated in seasonal events at the Turtle Bay Music School, raising a music education fund for children from disadvantaged families. The friendships he developed during these events helped him understand just how much music can mean to someone, giving him the idea to combine his love for singing and recent technological advancements to help others compose their own pieces. His research, under the guidance of David Gu, applies a hybrid HMM and convolutional neural network with LSTM to compose music.

Andrew Caosun discusses a framework that unifies hidden Markov models and deep learn algorithms (RNN) with modeling components that consider long-term memory and semantics of music (LSTM and convolution). It takes users' original creations as input, modifies the raw scores, and generates musically appropriate melodies. Read more.
