Abstract [sv]

Genomtänkta fingersättningar är användbara för att kunna spela ett instrument väl, och bidrar till att förbättra både flexibilitet och ljudkvalitet. Denna studie utforskade möjligheterna att med hjälp av en uppsättning regler generera ergonomiska fingersättningar för piano, för monofoniska melodier. En algoritm baserad på dynamisk programmering implementerades, och trellisgrafer användes för att illustrera degenererade fingersättningarna. Algoritmens prestationsförmåga utvärderades genom att jämföra de givna resultaten med fingersättningar föreslagna av två professionellapianister. Mängden av automatiskt genererade fingersättningar inkluderade stora delar av de fingersättningar som föreslagits av pianisterna, men också en stor mängd fingersättningar som inte höll lika hög kvalitet.

Abstract [en]

In order to play an instrument well, carefully planned fingerings can be helpful and improve flexibility and sound quality. This study explores the possibilities of generating ergonomic piano fingerings for monophonic melodies based on a set of rules. Analgorithm is implemented using dynamic programming, and trellis graphs are used to illustrate the possible fingerings. The performance of the algorithm was evaluated by comparing the obtained results with fingerings suggested by two professional pianists.The automatically generated set of fingerings included large parts of the fingerings suggested by the pianists, but also a large superset of other fingerings of lower quality.
