I did an MSc in Informatics at Edinburgh University in 2007-8. My research project, supervised by Mark Steedman, was on the development of a grammar for jazz chord sequences and a parser to put it into practice. The thesis was entitled Automatic Harmonic Analysis of Jazz Chord Progressions Using a Musical Categorial Grammar.

I have continued this work directly in my PhD, also supervised by Mark Steedman. The theory in the dissertation is also hideously out of date now, since it's moved on so much during my PhD.
