This paper intends to research on the link between musical similarity and style and sub-style (variant) classification in the context of flamenco a cappella singing styles. Given the limitation of standard computational models for melodic characterization and similarity computation in this particular context, we have proposed a specific set of melodic(More)
Flamenco is a music tradition from Southern Spain that attracts a growing community of enthusiasts around the world. Its unique melodic and rhythmic elements, the typically spontaneous and improvised interpretation, and its diversity regarding styles make this still largely undocumented art form a particularly interesting material for musicological studies.(More)
Background in ethnomusicology and music analysis. A cappella singing styles (called cantes in the flamenco jargon) are among the most fundamental song styles within the flamenco repertoire. Until very recently, flamenco singers have been only using oral transmission to learn them. Because of this form of diffusion, melody has become one of the main musical(More)
The purpose of this paper is to present an algorithmic pipeline for melodic pattern detection in audio files. Our method follows a two-stage approach: first, vocal pitch sequences are extracted from the audio recordings by means of a predominant fundamental frequency estimation technique; second, instances of the patterns are detected directly in the pitch(More)

Online information about flamenco music is scattered over different sites and knowledge bases. Unfortunately, there is no common repository that indexes all these data. In this work, information related to flamenco music is gathered from general knowledge bases (e.g., Wikipedia, DBpedia), music encyclopedias (e.g., MusicBrainz), and specialized flamenco(More)
This interdisciplinary case study focuses on two well-established music traditions, flamenco and Arab-Andalusian music with special focus on the melodic aspects of the singing voice. We apply a hybrid methodology combining a traditional musicological analysis with music information retrieval techniques. Focusing on two representative pieces, a flamenco(More)
This work focuses on the topic of melodic characterization and similarity in a specific musical repertoire: a cappella flamenco singing, more specifically in debla and martinete styles. We propose the combination of manual and automatic description. First, we use a state-of-the-art automatic transcription method to account for general melodic similarity(More)
BACKGROUND Researchers, professionals, and families have shown increasing concern with the family quality of life (FQoL) of people with intellectual disability (ID) and their families. The goals of this research were (a) to explore how Spanish families understand FQoL by developing 2 different measurement tools for families with a member with ID under and(More)
