Abstract: The representation of music structures is, from Musicology to Artificial Intelligence, a widely known research focus. It entails several generic Knowledge Representation problems like structured knowledge representation, time representation and causality. In this paper, we focus the problem of representing and reasoning about time in the framework of a structured music representation approach, intended to support the development of a Case-Based generative composition system. The basic idea of this system is to use Music Analysis as foundation for a generative process of composition, providing a structured and constrained way of composing novel pieces, although keeping the essential traits of the composer’s style. We propose a solution that combines a tree-like representation with a pseudo-dating scheme to provide an efficient and expressive means to deal with the problem.
