Exhibit Sources: Jazzomat Research Project & Database (University of Music Franz Liszt Weimar).

The main aim of the Jazzomat Research Project is to investigate the creative processes underlying jazz solo improvisations with the help of statistical and computational methods. The overarching goal is to explore the cognitive and cultural foundations of jazz solo improvisation. To this end, the Weimar Jazz Database, a comprehensive and representative database of jazz solo transcription is being built up, and an open-source Python Library, the MeloSpyLib is developed for analysis purposes.
