<p>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.</p><p> </p><p>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. </p><p>The MIDI pieces analyzed for each style of music can be found at these DOIs:</p><p>Medieval: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5435983</p><p>Renaissance: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5435992</p><p>Baroque: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5435995</p><p>Classical: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436010</p><p>Romantic: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436013</p><p>Impressionistic: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436016</p><p>Twentieth: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436019</p><p>Chinese: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436022</p><p>Hindu Raga: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436025</p><p>Venezuelan: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436106</p><p>Rock: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436031</p><p> </p><p>Movie Themes: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436034</p><p>Rock: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436031</p><p> </p><p>Movie Themes: 10.6084/m9.figshare.5436034</p>
