I am senior at Horace Mann School. I’ve been actively involved with Concerts in Motion since middle school, spending Sunday afternoons singing with seniors in nursing homes. I’ve also participated in seasonal events at the Turtle Bay Music School where we raised a music education fund for children from disadvantaged families. The friendships I’ve developed during these events have helped me to understand just how much music can mean to someone. Instead of just listening to someone singing once a week, everyone should be able to create their own music. Thus, I had the idea of combining my love for singing and recent technological advancements to help others compose their own pieces. I developed this research under the guidance of Professor David Gu.
We are among the first to apply a hybrid of HMM and convolutional neural network with LSTM to the music composing. The hybrid approach is further extended to allow users to specify magnitude of revision, duration of music segment to be revised, choice of genres, popularity of songs, and co-creation of songs in social settings. The mobile user interface we designed are intuitive, interactive, and flexible, suitable to the elderly and young children.
