We present a new technique for audio signal comparison based on tonal subsequence alignment and its application to detect cover versions (i.e., different performances of the same underlying musical piece). Cover song identification is a task whose popularity has increased in the music information retrieval (MIR) community along in the past, as it provides a(More)
—Efficiently finding similar segments or motifs in time series data is a fundamental task that, due to the ubiquity of these data, is present in a wide range of domains and situations. Because of this, countless solutions have been devised but, to date, none of them seems to be fully satisfactory and flexible. In this article, we propose an innovative(More)
Automatic raga recognition is one of the fundamental computational tasks in Indian art music. Motivated by the way seasoned listeners identify ragas, we propose a raga recognition approach based on melodic phrases. Firstly, we extract melodic patterns from a collection of audio recordings in an unsupervised way. Next, we group similar patterns by exploiting(More)
R¯ aga is the melodic framework of Indian art music. It is a core concept used in composition, performance, organization , and pedagogy. Automatic r¯ aga recognition is thus a fundamental information retrieval task in Indian art music. In this paper, we propose the time-delayed melody surface (TDMS), a novel feature based on delay coordinates that captures(More)
The detection of very similar patterns in a time series, commonly called motifs, has received continuous and increasing attention from diverse scientific communities. In particular, recent approaches for discovering similar motifs of different lengths have been proposed. In this work, we show that such variable-length similarity-based motifs cannot be(More)
Ra̅ga motifs are the main building blocks of the melodic structures in Indian art music. Therefore, the discovery and characterization of such motifs is fundamental for the computational analysis of this music. We propose an approach for discovering ra̅ga motifs from audio music collections. First, we extract melodic patterns from a collection(More)
R¯ aga motifs are the main building blocks of the melodic structures in Indian art music. Therefore, the discovery and characterization of such motifs is fundamental for the computational analysis of this music. We propose an approach for discovering r¯ aga motifs from audio music collections. First, we extract melodic patterns from a collection of 44 hours(More)
Finding repeated patterns or motifs in a time series is an important unsupervised task that has still a number of open issues, starting by the definition of motif. In this paper, we revise the notion of motif support, characterizing it as the number of patterns or repetitions that define a motif. We then propose GENMOTIF, a genetic algorithm to discover(More)
We perform a comparative evaluation of methodologies for computing similarity between short-time melodic fragments of audio recordings of Indian art music. We experiment with 560 different combinations of procedures and parameter values. These include the choices made for the sampling rate of the melody representation, pitch quantization levels,(More)
