Jazz Bass Transcription Using a U-Net Architecture

Jakob Abeßer, Meinard Müller
2021 Electronics  
In this paper, we adapt a recently proposed U-net deep neural network architecture from melody to bass transcription.  ...  Using a training set that covers various music genres and a validation set that includes jazz ensemble recordings, we obtain the best transcription performance for a downscaled version of the reference  ...  In addition, our gratitude goes to Thomas Bugert for his transcription work on the Weimar Jazz Dataset bass lines and the Jazzomat Research Project for publishing the WJD dataset.  ...

Improving Bass Saliency Estimation using Transfer Learning and Label Propagation

Jakob Abeßer, Stefan Balke, Meinard Müller
2018 Zenodo  
In this paper, we consider two methods to improve an algorithm for bass saliency estimation in jazz ensemble recordings which are based on deep neural networks.  ...  Second, we study in several transfer learning experiments, whether isolated note recordings can be beneficial for pre-training a model which is later fine-tuned on ensemble recordings.  ...  of the commonly played walking bass lines in jazz music.  ...

Transcribing Lead Sheet-Like Chord Progressions of Jazz Recordings

Gabriel Durán, Patricio de la Cuadra
2020 Computer Music Journal  
This automatic chord transcription system is trained and tested on jazz recordings only, and achieves better performance than other systems trained on larger databases that are not jazz specific.  ...  Jazz is strongly based on improvisation, however, and the way harmony is interpreted is different from many other genres, causing state-of-the-art chord transcription systems to achieve poor performance  ...  Deep-learning methods have been used for the feature-extraction step, for sequence analysis, and more recently for both at the same time.  ...

Score and Lyrics-Free Singing Voice Generation [article]

Jen-Yu Liu and Yu-Hua Chen and Yin-Cheng Yeh and Yi-Hsuan Yang
2020 arXiv   pre-print
Generative models for singing voice have been mostly concerned with the task of "singing voice synthesis," i.e., to produce singing voice waveforms given musical scores and text lyrics.  ...  In a source separation task, a model learns to decompose, or unmix, different sources (e.g., vocal, piano, bass, drum) from a mixture signal.  ...  For Sinsy, we use the publicly available repository 4 to query the Sinsy API; 5 we use the HMM version (Oura et al. 2010 ) instead of the deep learning version as the latter cannot generate male voices  ...

Gunther Schuller and the Challenge of Sonny Rollins:

Benjamin Givan

Evaluating an Analysis-by-Synthesis Model for Jazz Improvisation

Klaus Frieler, Wolf-Georg Zaddach
2022 Transactions of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval  
First, we present a generative model for (monophonic) jazz improvisation whose main purpose is testing hypotheses on creative processes during jazz improvisation.  ...  Second, as there are several issues with Turing-like evaluation processes for generative models of jazz improvisation, we decided to conduct an exploratory online study to gain further insight while testing  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS We like to thank all participants in the evaluation experiment, Simon Dixon for proof-reading the manuscript, and three anomymous reviewers for their helpful comments.  ...
