Towards minimal test collections for evaluation of audio music similarity and retrieval

Julián Urbano, Markus Schedl
2012 Proceedings of the 21st international conference companion on World Wide Web - WWW '12 Companion  
In this paper we show a first approach towards its application to the evaluation of the Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval task, run by the annual MIREX evaluation campaign.  ...  Making these annotations is quite complex and tedious for many Music Information Retrieval tasks, so performing such evaluations requires too much effort.  ...  CONCLUSIONS We have shown how to adapt the Minimal Test Collections (MTC) family of algorithms for the evaluation of the Audio Music Similarity and Retrieval task.  ...

Fast intra-collection audio matching

Verena Thomas, Sebastian Ewert, Michael Clausen
2012 Proceedings of the second international ACM workshop on Music information retrieval with user-centered and multimodal strategies - MIRUM '12  
The general goal of audio matching is to identify all audio extracts of a music collection that are similar to a given query snippet.  ...  This allows us to split the audio collection into equal sized overlapping segments and to precompute their retrieval results using dynamic time warping (DTW).  ...  Afterwards, we examine the quality of the reported matches. Datasets For the presented evaluations, we prepared two collections featuring audio recordings of Western classical music.  ...

Audio Tag Annotation and Retrieval Using Tag Count Information [chapter]

Hung-Yi Lo, Shou-De Lin, Hsin-Min Wang
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The results of audio tag annotation and retrieval experiments show that the proposed approach outperforms our previous method, which won the MIREX 2009 audio tagging competition.  ...  Audio tags correspond to keywords that people use to describe different aspects of a music clip, such as the genre, mood, and instrumentation.  ...  Table 1 shows some examples of audio clips with associated tags obtained from the MajorMiner [6] website 4 , a web-based game for collecting music tags.  ...

Searching Page-Images of Early Music Scanned with OMR: A Scalable Solution Using Minimal Absent Words

Tim Crawford, Golnaz Badkobeh, David Lewis
2018 Zenodo  
We define three retrieval tasks requiring efficient search of the musical content of a collection of ~32k pageimages of 16th-century music to find: duplicates; pages with the same musical content; pages  ...  Approximate matching is done by counting the number of common words between a query page and those in the collection. The two word-types are (a) normal ngrams and (b) minimal absent words (MAWs).  ...  In our experiments with our test dataset, retrieval performance for the dupl task was found to be similar for 20.  ...
