We seek to detect characteristics of regional language accent in solo singing using two variants of convolutional neural networks to classify reported country and language from ten countries during karaoke-style vocal performance of the broadly popular hymn, Amazing Grace. The most successful model produces overall accuracy of 15.64%, with false classification of singing segments to be variants of English at 53.4%. The model also separates learned classes along a rhythmic-stress dimension with… CONTINUE READING
