A Comparison between Global and Local Features for Computational Classification of Folk Song Melodies
TLDR
We use a feature evaluation criterion that is based on the performance of nearest-neighbour classifier. Expand

A Measure for Evaluating Retrieval Techniques based on Partially Ordered Ground Truth Lists
TLDR
We introduce the "average dynamic recall" (ADR) that averages the recall among a dynamic set of relevant documents, taking into account the fact that the ground truth reliably orders groups of matches, but not always individual matches. Expand

A Survey of Music Information Retrieval Systems
TLDR
An overview of Music Information Retrieval (MIR) systems for content-based music searching, preceded by a brief overview of the methods commonly used by these systems. Expand

A Ground Truth For Half A Million Musical Incipits
TLDR
This paper describes how we filtered the RISM A/II collection so that about 50 candidates per query were left, which we then presented to 35 human experts for a final ranking. Expand

Using transportation distances for measuring melodic similarity
TLDR
We evaluate the appropriateness of the Earth Mover’s Distance (EMD) and the Proportional Transportation Distance (PTD), a pseudometric for weighted point sets which is based on the EMD. Expand

Tonal Pitch Step Distance: a Similarity Measure for Chord Progressions
TLDR
We introduce a new distance function in the domain of polyphonic music that measures the difference between chord progressions on the basis of harmonic similarity. Expand

Robust Segmentation and Annotation of Folk Song Recordings
TLDR
We introduce an automated approach for segmenting folk song recordings into its constituent stanzas, which can then be made accessible to folk song researchers by means of suitable visualization, searching, and navigation interfaces. Expand

Modeling Harmonic Similarity Using a Generative Grammar of Tonal Harmony
TLDR
We present a new method of harmonic similarity matching that applies a remodeling of Rohrmeier’s phrase-structure grammar for tonal harmony as underlying cognitive and music theoretical model. Expand

Computational Modeling of Induced Emotion Using GEMS
TLDR
We exploit a comprehensive set of features from several state-of-the-art toolboxes and propose a new set of harmonically motivated features. Expand
