Abstract : Automatic music improvisation systems based on the OMax paradigm use training over a one-dimensional sequence to generate original improvisations. Different systems use different heuristics to guide the improvisation but none of these benefits from training over a multidimensional sequence. We propose a system creating improvisation in a closer way to a human improviser where the intuition of a context is enriched with knowledge. This system combines a probabilistic model taking into account the multidimen-sional aspect of music trained on a corpus, with a factor oracle. The probabilistic model is constructed by interpolating sub-models and represents the knowledge of the system, while the factor oracle (structure used in OMax) represents the context. The results show the potential of such a system to perform better navigation in the factor oracle, guided by the knowledge on several dimensions.
