These are required dependencies: - Python 2.7 - music21 - pandas - mock (for testing) These are recommended dependencies: - numexpr (improved performance for pandas) - Bottleneck (improved performance for pandas) - tables (HDF5 output for pandas) - openpyxl (Excel output for pandas) Citation ======== To cite the VIS Framework in publications use: Antila, Christopher and Jamie Klassen.
