Published: 01 October 1984
...Mark J. Steedman The recursive character of musical chord sequences makes generative grammar a suitable formalism for describing the rules that constrain such sequences. A small number of rules are presented which generate the members of a large class of complex chord sequences that are generally...

The results have implications...
