The balance between randomization and regularization is a key and contradictory issue in the development of automatic composing. Randomized algorithm focuses on creating innovative and novel melodies but will generate unpleasant result. Regularized algorithm uses the existed music and rules to compose pleasant music piece, but the results are similar to the pieces in the training set. In this paper, we set up a new automatic composition model by detecting the pitch of Chinese poetry recitation. First, we utilize the Simplified Inverse Filter Tracking (SIFT) to detect the pitch of the acoustic input signal. Variety of the intonations of the texts of Chinese poetry ensures the innovativeness and randomness of the pitch change. Meanwhile, the congruence between melody and tones makes the change of pitch musically. In order to make the rhythm musical as well, we introduce the database of music scores (in the form of MusicXML) and apply a matching algorithm to determine the duration of each note. The experiment shows that the melody generated by our system is both innovative and in agreement with the musicology in pitch and rhythm.
