RWC Music Database: Popular, Classical and Jazz Music Databases
TLDR
The design policy and specifications of the RWC Music Database are described, a music database (DB) that is available to researchers for common use and research purposes, which contains four original DBs: the Popular Music Database (100 pieces), Royalty-Free Music Database(15 pieces), Classical Music Database ($50 pieces), and Jazz Music Database (£50 pieces).
Content-Based Music Information Retrieval: Current Directions and Future Challenges
TLDR
The problems of content-based music information retrieval are outlined and the state-of-the-art methods using audio cues and other cues are explored, and some of the major challenges for the coming years are identified.
RWC Music Database: Music genre database and musical instrument sound database
TLDR
The design policy and specifications of the RWC Music Database, a copyright-cleared music database compiled specifically for research purposes, are described and it is hoped that the DB will make a significant contribution to future advances in the field of music information processing.
An Audio-based Real-time Beat Tracking System for Music With or Without Drum-sounds
TLDR
A real-time beat tracking system that recognizes a hierarchical beat structure comprising the quarter-note, half- note, and measure levels in real-world audio signals sampled from popular-music compact discs is described.

  • 6 April 2003
TLDR
This method, called RefraiD, can detect all the chorus sections in a song and estimate both ends of each section and can also detect modulated chorus sections by introducing a similarity that enables modulated repetition to be judged correctly.
Development of the RWC Music Database
TLDR
The RWC (Real World Computing) Music Database is introduced, a copyright-cleared music database that is available to researchers as a common foundation for research and has already been widely used.
A chorus section detection method for musical audio signals and its application to a music listening station
  • Masataka Goto
  • Computer Science
    IEEE Transactions on Audio, Speech, and Language…
  • 1 September 2006
TLDR
An application of the RefraiD method, a new music-playback interface for trial listening called SmartMusicKIOSK, which enables a listener to directly jump to and listen to the chorus section while viewing a graphical overview of the entire song structure.
AIST Dance Video Database: Multi-Genre, Multi-Dancer, and Multi-Camera Database for Dance Information Processing
TLDR
The AIST Dance DB is developed as the first large-scale shared database focusing on street dances to facilitate research on a variety of tasks related to dancing to music and proposes a dance-motion genre-classification task and developed four baseline methods of identifying dance genres of videos in this database.
Infinite Positive Semidefinite Tensor Factorization for Source Separation of Mixture Signals
TLDR
A nonparametric Bayesian model based on a gamma process that can instantiate only a limited number of necessary bases from the infinitely many bases assumed to exist is proposed and a variational Bayesian algorithm for closed-form posterior inference and a multiplicative update rule for maximum-likelihood estimation is derived.
