From Raw Polyphonic Audio To Locating Recurring Themes

Thomas Von Schroeter, Shyamala Doraisamy, Stefan M. Rüger
2000 Zenodo  
In contrast to this, most Western-style music is essentially polyphonic. Here, the transcription from raw audio to a higher-level encoding is much more challenging.  ...  Implementation of a theme locator system A system to locate a recurring theme was implemented in the following steps: Extraction.  ...

Polyphonic music retrieval

Shyamala Doraisamy
2005 SIGIR Forum  
Techniques for full-music indexing of polyphonic music data with n-grams are investigated. A method to obtain n-grams from polyphonic music data is introduced.  ...  Various n-gramming strategies are proposed to overcome several problems that arise from the use of the n-gram method with polyphonic music.  ...  or raw audio sources.  ...

Modeling Musical Structure with Artificial Neural Networks [article]

Stefan Lattner
2020 arXiv   pre-print
For learning transformations in sequences, I propose a special predictive training of the GAE, which yields a representation of polyphonic music as a sequence of intervals.  ...  In this thesis, I explore the application of ANNs to different aspects of musical structure modeling, identify some challenges involved and propose strategies to address them.  ...  Acknowledgements First and foremost, I want to thank my supervisor Gerhard Widmer for his valuable support, the opportunity to work in his welcoming team, and to obtain my Ph.D. in such a scientifically  ...

Rhythmic Feel as Meter

Rainer Polak
2010 Music Theory Online  
This article studies the empirical structures and theoretical status of rhythmic feels in jembe music, which is a popular style of drum ensemble music from West Africa.  ...  Cyclic variation of subpulse durations, I argue, is inherent in the repertoire and fundamental to the metric system of jembe music.  ...  Again, a selective local strengthening of the recurring feel pattern achieves expressive timing. [128] Audio 9a loops Cycle 8 from Video 2, measured above in Table 19 ; Audio 9b isolates the lead jembe  ...
