Type of media: Abstract
In traditional Taiwanese music, not much information is recorded for percussion instruments. There is a very small amount of research for gongs and drums in Taiwanese music. This research tries to analyze rhythm of Bei Guan music by using rhythm complexity measure, to find out its attributes and similarities, and then to perform the similar and automated composition of Bei Guan music. The result of the research shows the possibility to preserve and promote Taiwanese Bei Guan Music with automated composition techniques.
