Petri Nets are a formal tool for studying systems that are concurrent, asynchronous, distributed, parallel, nondeterministic, and/or stochastic. They were used in a number of real-world simulations and scientific problems, but seldom considered an effective means to describe and/or generate music. The purpose of this paper is demonstrating that Petri Nets (enriched with some peculiar extensions) can well represent the results of a musicological analysis process.
