abstract

  • A fundamental problem in music is to classify songs according to their rhythm. A rhythm is represented by a sequence of “Quick” (Q) and “Slow” (S) symbols, which correspond to the (relative) duration of notes, such that S = 2Q. In this paper, we present an efficient algorithm for locating the maximum-length substring of a music text t that can be covered by a given rhythm r.
