RP Scripts’ documentation

RP Scripts is an open-source command-line program designed to extract rhythmic partitioning information from given digital music scores files, plot partitiogram and indexogram, and create annotated digital music scores files.

This program reads MusicXML (compressed or not), Kern, and MIDI files generating rhythmic partitioning data in JSON files and partitioning charts. It uses the Music21 library for score parsing and Matplotlib for chart plotting.

Some published papers describe RP Scripts’ features (See Section Bibliography). The software is available at https://github.com/msampaio/rpScripts.

This program is an HMB Project outcome.
