Generating Musical Accompaniment Using Machine Learning
A.B. Lucas S.S.

From image recognition to natural language processing to genetic research, learning algorithms that are capable of using past information to model patterns have become a major part of modern life whether the average person realizes it or not. In this project, a novel deep learning algorithm that is capable of producing a sophisticated musical accompaniment to a given melody is presented.

Biography

My name is Sascha Bodak. In the future I hope to become a Software Engineer. My hobbies include reading, programming, and writing music. My love for music and computer science inspired this science fair project. I would urge anyone interested in starting their own project to find a great mentor who can guide you through the important steps required to bring your idea to life.
