Computers are well suited to tasks such as data categorization and labeling. More challenging is data “generation”, a problem in which recurrent neural networks (RNNs) and more specifically long short-term memory networks (LSTMs) have made significant progress in the past few years. In this project, I train an RNN on a database of classical sheet music, and use it to generate new sheet music.
