By combining attention-based mechanisms that have proved beneficial in the field of natural language processing with domain-specific knowledge about the structure of music, better predictions about piece continuations can be made. The goal of this work is to adapt current natural language processing techniques to a musical domain, and to generate new music by predicting continuations on a sequence of notes. An adaptation of traditional attention mechanisms to create a single prediction from sequential input is used to extend musical pieces by appending new elements repeatedly.
