MusicNet offers music characterizations. This Data Set contains the results obtained after the analysis of pieces of MIDI music. The analysis was performed by applying the concept of Fundamental Scale: the set of symbols producing the minimal entropy when reading a text consisting of a large sequence of characters.

Each piece is characterized by its character-length. The results are presented in terms of symbolic diversity, entropy, and second order entropy. These characterizations of music allow to represent music pieces, composers, styles and periods in a 3-dimensional space with symbolic diversity, entropy, and second order entropy as its axis.

The MIDI pieces analyzed for each style of music can be found at these DOIs:
