Our guest today is Michael Cuthbert, an associate professor of music at MIT and principal investigator of the Music21 project, which is the focus of our discussion.
Music21 is a python library making analysis of music accessible and fun. It supports integration with popular formats such as MIDI, MusicXML, Lilypond, and others. It's also well integrated with The Elvis Project, enabling users to import large volumes of music for easy analysis. Music21 is a great platform for musicologists and machine learning researchers alike to explore patterns and structure in music.
