Dynamic nonparametric bayesian models for analysis of music
Repository Usage Stats
The dynamic hierarchical Dirichlet process (dHDP) is developed to model complex sequential data, with a focus on audio signals from music. The music is represented in terms of a sequence of discrete observations, and the sequence is modeled using a hidden Markov model (HMM) with time-evolving parameters. The dHDP imposes the belief that observations that are temporally proximate are more likely to be drawn from HMMs with similar parameters, while also allowing for "innovation" associated with abrupt changes in the music texture. The sharing mechanisms of the time-evolving model are derived, and for inference a relatively simple Markov chain Monte Carlo sampler is developed. Segmentation of a given musical piece is constituted via the model inference. Detailed examples are presented on several pieces, with comparisons to other models. The dHDP results are also compared with a conventional music-theoretic analysis. All the supplemental materials used by this paper are available online. © 2010 American Statistical Association.

Development of novel approaches for representing and analyzing complex data. A particular focus is on methods that incorporate geometric structure (both known and unknown) and on probabilistic approaches to characterize uncertainty. In addition, a big interest is in scalable algorithms and in developing approaches with provable guarantees.This fundamental work is directly motivated by applications in biomedical research, network data analysis, neuroscience, genomics, ecol
Professor of Music
I am a composer of instrumental and vocal music as well as interactive computer music. My most recent works are Cadences (2016), commissioned by the Electric Earth Concert Series as part of a collaboration with novelist Richard Powers; and Piano Roll Prosody (2017), which was premiered by pianist Donald Berman. Current projects include a piano trio, a solo cello composition for cellist Ashley Bathgate, and a work for soprano saxophone and string quart
