Abstract : Rhythm quantization is the act of transforming a temporal stream, for example a sequence of notes, into a music sheet, given the tempo. This sequence of notes can be taken from the performance of a musician, or generated with computer-assisted composition tools : we will consider the latter case in this work. Transcription is a part of the creation process, thus we aim to develop a tool allowing the composers to transcribe their works into music sheets the way they want. To do so, we interviewed composers and we developed an algorithm that returns a set of possible transcriptions of a sequence of notes, ranked according to a criterion that takes into account the precision of the notation (how close the output is from the input) and its complexity (how readable it is). We present some results of this algorithm and compare them to those returned by the quantization tool currently used in the computer-assisted composition environment OpenMusic. We suggest various possible improvements for future work.
