Characterization Of Intonation In Carnatic Music By Parametrizing Pitch Histograms

Gopala K. Koduri, Joan Serrà, Xavier Serra
2012 Zenodo  
ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research was partly funded by the European Research Council under the European Union's Seventh Framework Program, as part of the CompMusic project (ERC grant agreement 267583).  ...  HISTOGRAM PEAK PARAMETRIZATION In this contribution we propose a methodology based on histogram peak parametrization that helps to describe the intonation of a given recording by characterizing the distribution  ...  Therefore, to understand and model Carnatic music computationally, intonation analysis becomes a fundamental step. We define intonation as the pitches used by a performer in a given musical piece.  ...

Intonation Analysis of Rāgas in Carnatic Music

Gopala Krishna Koduri, Vignesh Ishwar, Joan Serrà, Xavier Serra
2014 Journal of New Music Research  
In this paper, we first assess rāga intonation qualitatively by analyzing varṇaṁs, a particular form of Carnatic music compositions.  ...  We propose two approaches based on the parametrization of pitch-value distributions: performance pitch histograms, and context-based svara distributions obtained by categorizing pitch contours based on  ...  Hema Murthy and Ajay Srinivasamurthy for their help in analyzing varṇaṁs. is  ...

Creating A Corpus Of Jingju (Beijing Opera) Music And Possibilities For Melodic Analysis

Rafael Caro Repetto, Xavier Serra
2014 Zenodo  
ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS This research was funded by the European Research Council under the European Union's Seventh Framework Program, as part of the CompMusic project (ERC grant agreement 267583).  ...  The obtained pitch tracks have been used for the computation of pitch histograms. Koduri et al. have successfully characterized Carnatic ragas by histogram peak parametrization [7] .  ...  Chen [3] has attempted a characterization of these entities by means of pitch histograms.  ...

The musical dimension of Chinese traditional theatre: An analysis from computer aided musicology

Rafael Caro Repetto, Manel Ollé, Xavier Serra
2018 Zenodo  
Music, and especially singing, is one of the most important dimensions of xiqu, Chinese traditional theatre.  ...  Grouped according to the four main elements of the jingju musical system, a comparative analysis is performed on 24 line categories in order to produce melodic schemata that represent each shengqiang's  ...  Chen Kainan studied intonation in jingju singing by computing pitch histograms normalized to the first degree of the sung scale.  ...

Cross-cultural data shows musical scales evolved to maximise imperfect fifths [article]

John M. McBride, Tsvi Tlusty
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Musical scales are used throughout the world, but the question of how they evolved remains open.  ...  However, testing these theories has been hindered by the sparseness of empirical evidence. Here, we assimilate data from diverse ethnomusicological sources into a cross-cultural database of scales.  ...  ., Western, Arabic, Carnatic), taking into account usage of different tuning systems (e.g., equal temperament, just intonation) [12] .  ...
