Dr. Boenn's main areas of research are algorithmic composition, rhythm, and expressive timing. His latest book, Computational Models of Rhythm and Meter, published by Springer Nature, explores new methods for the composition, analysis, and transcription of musical rhythms, meter, and form. By taking into account music perception, psychology, and mathematics, it develops a new process for the automated transcription of rhythms from musical performances.

Georg has published in peer-reviewed journals, and has presented at a number of international conferences (ICMC, LAC, ICSC). He wrote numerous algorithms for music analysis and composition that are implemented in his open-source software project called chunking.

Topics: Algorithmic composition, rhythm, and expressive timing.
