Melodic similarity among folk songs: An annotation study on similarity-based categorization in music

Anja Volk, Peter van Kranenburg
2012 Musicae Scientiae  
Global melodic features often used for the description of melodies (such as melodic contour) play a less important role.  ...  We introduce a newly developed annotation method which is used to create an annotation data set for 360 folk song melodies in 26 tune families.  ...  Tune family members can be successfully retrieved by determining the similarity of the melody to the reference melody. 4. For tune family 13, annotations concerning the feature Lyrics are missing.  ...

A Comparison between Global and Local Features for Computational Classification of Folk Song Melodies

Peter van Kranenburg, Anja Volk, Frans Wiering
2013 Journal of New Music Research  
However, from an annotation study on perceived melodic similarity and human categorization in music it followed that local features of melodies are most important to classify and recognize melodies.  ...  In computational approaches to the study of variation among folk song melodies from oral culture, both global and local features of melodies have been used.  ...  Rodriguez Lo´pez (Utrecht University) for careful proof reading and suggestions.

Recognition of the Main Melody in a Polyphonic Symbolic Score using Perceptual Knowledge

Anders Friberg, Sven Ahlbäck
2009 Journal of New Music Research  
The resulting models predicted the correct melody in about 90% of the cases using a set of eight features. The results emphasize context as an important factor for determining the main melody.  ...  Melodic properties have been studied in several research projects, however, the differences between properties of the melody and properties of the accompaniment (nonmelodic) voices have not been addressed  ...  Acknowledgements This work was done within the project SYMIR supported by the Swedish Research Council, Grant Nr. 2005-3696.  ...

From Heuristics-Based To Data-Driven Audio Melody Extraction

Juan J. Bosch, Emilia Gómez
2017 Zenodo  
Finally, we explore novel timbre, tonal and spatial features for contour characterisation, and propose a method for estimating multiple melodic lines.  ...  The identification of the melody from a music recording is a relatively easy task for humans, but very challenging for computational systems.  ...  For a given song, we start from the extracted set of contours, and compute the amount of overlap with each of the annotated melodic lines.  ...

Multi-Strategy Segmentation Of Melodies

Marcelo Enrique Rodríguez-López, Anja Volk, Dimitrios Bountouridis
2014 Zenodo  
Cue Relevance Prediction For a given set of k cue models C = {c i } 1≤i≤k , and a set of h features describing the melodies F = {f j } 1≤j≤h , we need to estimate how well a given cue model might perform  ...  The first uses the input melodic features to estimate the 'relevance' of a given cue for the perception of boundaries in the input melody, and the second merges and filters the predicted boundary locations  ...

Corpus COFLA: A research corpus for the Computational study of Flamenco Music [article]

Nadine Kroher, José-Miguel Díaz-Báñez, Joaquin Mora, Emilia Gómez
2015 arXiv   pre-print
The proposed collection of audio recordings and meta-data serves as a pool for creating annotated subsets which can be used in development and evaluation of algorithms for specific music information retrieval  ...  We showcase possible research applications in the context of computational study of flamenco music and give perspectives regarding further development of the corpus.  ...  Consequently, scores are scarce and given the high degree and complexity of melodic ornamentation of the vocal melody, manual annotations are extremely time-consuming and always involve a certain degree  ...

Melodic Contour and Mid-Level Global Features Applied to the Analysis of Flamenco Cantes [article]

Francisco Gómez, Joaquín Mora, Emilia Gómez, José Miguel Díaz-Báñez
2015 arXiv   pre-print
We propose the combination of manual and automatic description. First, we use a state-of-the-art automatic transcription method to account for general melodic similarity from music recordings.  ...  Second, we define a specific set of representative mid-level melodic features, which are manually labeled by flamenco experts.  ...  Therefore, whereas the low-level variables were computed by purely computational methods, mid-level variables needed manual annotation -very human annotation would be a fairer description.  ...
