Musical Style Modification as an Optimization Problem

This paper concerns musical style modification on symbolic level. It introduces a new, flexible method for changing a given piece of music so that its style is modified to another one that previously has been learned from a corpus of musical pieces. Mainly this is an optimization task with the music's note events being optimized for different objectives relating to that corpus. The method has been developed for the use case of pushing existing monophonic pieces of music closer to the style of the outstanding electric bass guitar player Jaco Pastorius.
