—Note onset detection and localization is useful in a number of analysis and indexing techniques for musical signals. The usual way to detect onsets is to look for " transient " regions in the signal, a notion that leads to many definitions: a sudden burst of energy, a change in the short-time spectrum of the signal or in the statistical properties, etc.(More)
In this paper we propose a text represention for musical chord symbols that is simple and intuitive for musically trained individuals to write and understand, yet highly structured and unambiguous to parse with computer programs. When designing feature extraction algorithms, it is important to have a hand annotated test set providing a ground truth to(More)
In this paper, we describe current efforts towards interlink-ing music-related datasets on the Web. We first explain some initial interlinking experiences, and the poor results obtained by taking a na¨ıve approach. We then detail a particular interlinking algorithm, taking into account both the similarities of web resources and of their neighbours. We(More)
Sonic Visualiser is the name for an implementation of a system to assist study and comprehension of the contents of audio data, particularly of musical recordings. It is a C++ application with a Qt4 GUI that runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux. It embodies a number of concepts which are intended to improve interaction with audio data and features, most notably(More)
— In this paper we describe a novel approach to applying text-based information retrieval techniques to music collections. We represent tracks with a joint vocabulary consisting of both conventional words, drawn from social tags, and audio muswords, representing characteristics of automatically-identified regions of interest within the signal. We build(More)
We introduce a new model for extracting end points of music structure segments, such as intro, verse, chorus, break and so forth, from recorded music. Our methods are applied to the problem of grouping audio features into continuous structural segments with start and end times corresponding as closely as possible to a ground truth of independent human(More)
