Phrase-based rĀga recognition using vector space modeling
This work proposes a raga recognition approach based on melodic phrases that can be used as a dictionary of semantically-meaningful melodic units for several computational tasks in Indian art music. Expand
Classification of Melodic Motifs in Raga Music with Time-series Matching
In this work, machine learning methods are used on labelled databases of Hindustani and Carnatic vocal audio concerts to obtain phrase classification on manually segmented audio using Dynamic time warping and HMM based classification on time series of detected pitch values used for the melodic representation of a phrase.

Automatic Tonic Identification in Indian Art Music: Approaches and Evaluation
It is shown that the approaches that combine multi-pitch analysis with machine learning provide the best performance in most cases (90% identification accuracy on average), and are robust across the aforementioned contexts compared to the approaches based on expert knowledge. Expand
Motif Spotting in an Alapana in Carnatic Music
An attempt is made to spot typical melodic motifs of a raga queried in a musical piece using a two pass dynamic programming approach, with pitch as the basic feature. Expand

Intonation Analysis of Rāgas in Carnatic Music
This paper first assesses rga intonation qualitatively by analysing varṇaṁs, a particular form of Carnatic music compositions, and proposes two approaches based on the parametrization of pitch-value distributions: performance pitch histograms, and context-based svara distributions obtained by categorizing pitch contoursbased on the melodic context.
