Abstract

The formalization of musical composition rules is a topic

that has been studied for a long time. It can lead to a better

understanding of the underlying processes, and provide a

useful tool for musicologist to aid and speed up the analysis

process. In our attempt we introduce Schoenberg’s

rules from Fundamentals of Musical Composition using a

specialized version of Petri nets, called Music Petri nets.

Petri nets are a formal tool for studying systems that are

concurrent, asynchronous, distributed, parallel, nondeterministic,

and/or stochastic. We present some examples

highlighting how multiple approaches to the analysis task

can find counterparts in specific instances of PNs.
