The MRF-Music sequence is a special form of the MRF method that allows one to generate quantitative MR images with a pleasant sounding acquisition. This study introduces a fast converting method that generates the encoding gradients directly from the music for a 2D MRF-Music sequence in less than 1/5000th of the previous calculation time. The resulting gradients generate similar sound effects to the original music and still maintain high efficiency of quantifying T1, T2 and M0 maps simultaneously.
