Abstract A method for hierarchical classification of makams from symbolic data is presented. A makam generally implies a miscellany of rules for melodic composition using a given scale. Therefore, makam detection is to some level similar to the key detection problem. The proposed algorithm classifies makams by applying music theoretical knowledge and statistical evidence in a hierarchical manner. The makams using similar scales are first grouped together, and then identified in detail later… 

A computational analysis of Turkish makam music based on a probabilistic characterization of segmented phrases

TLDR
An automatic analysis algorithm that takes as input symbolic data in the form of machine-readable scores that are segmented into phrases that outputs for each phrase the most likely makam the phrase comes from.

Classification of Turkish makam music: a topological approach

TLDR
This paper represents songs with weighted networks where vertices and edges correspond to musical notes and their co-occurrences respectively and defines the diffusion Fréchet function over the weighted networks to encode the network topology and reaches its goal by combining the function values with machine-learning algorithms.

Artificial intelligence-based classification with classical Turkish music makams: Possibilities to Turkish music education

TLDR
A Musical Information Retrieval system has been created via the Artificial Intelligence (AI) method of Support Vector Machines (SVM) and Time Wavelet Scattering Feature Extraction and through using a Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) accelerator for the sake of feature extraction.

A computational analysis on similarities and dissimilarities of Acem Kurdi, Kurdi and Muhayyer Kurdi makams in Turkish music

TLDR
This study uses computational analysis based on histograms, pattern search and dynamic time warping to reveal the similarities and dissimilarities of three makams in Turkish music, revealing that a time dependent analysis is well suited for the identification of their distinguishing features.

Computational Analysis of Turkish Makam Music: Review of State-of-the-Art and Challenges

TLDR
A review of the computational analysis literature for Turkish makam music is targeted, discussing in detail the challenges involved and presenting a perspective for further studies.

Classification of classic Turkish music makams by using deep belief networks

TLDR

TLDR
Both n-gram models and profile hidden Markov models of melodic patterns are used for supervised classification and unsupervised learning of cadences in Classical string quartets, indicating that melodic cues would help in perceiving cadences but not in learning to perceive them.

N-gram Based Statistical Makam Detection on Makam Music in Turkey Using Symbolic Data

TLDR
Tests indicate that n-gram based statistical modeling and perplexity based similarity metric can be effectively used for makam detection, however the main dimension that cannot be captured is the overall progression which is the most unique feature for classification of close makams that uses the same scale notes as the same tonic.

Tonal-based retrieval of Arabic and middle-east music by automatic makam description

TLDR
This work evaluates two approaches for classifying musical pieces from the ‘makam world’, according to their scale, by using chroma features extracted from polyphonic music signals, and compares the extracted features with a set of makam templates.

Features for analysis of Makam music

TLDR
The target here is to evoke discussions on some measurable features other than providing complete analysis on the discriminative potentials of each proposed feature which could be the subject of a few larger studies.

RECOGNITION OF DASTGAH AND MAQAM FOR PERSIAN MUSIC WITH DETECTING SKELETAL MELODIC MODELS

TLDR
This paper defines some statistical measures that characterize the melodic pattern of a musical signal and uses a standard perceptron for pattern recognition for recognizing two features of Persian music, dastgah and maqam, by their relation to musical scale and mode.

TLDR
Maqam scales according to various theoretical models based on different tunings are compared with pitch measurements obtained from select recordings of master Turkish performers in order to study their level of match with analysed data.

Evaluating a simple approach to music information retrieval : conceiving melodic n-grams as text

TLDR
