TL;DR: A VAE-based pipeline that generates cohesive 16-bar MIDI melodies from images through emotion detection and modality transfer using feature embeddings.
Abstract: This work aims to study the possibility of melody generation based on any arbitrary image using the power of deep-learning neural networks. We suggest a VAE-based pipeline that generates cohesive 16-bar MIDI melodies from images through emotion detection and modality transfer using feature embeddings. To implement this pipeline, we used an image encoder, a MIDI VAE and three bridging computer vision models. We then evaluate the system by examining the musical features of four distinct outputs to see how well they have captured the features of the input images.
