A missing feature approach to instrument identification in polyphonic music

  title={A missing feature approach to instrument identification in polyphonic music},
  author={Jana Eggink and Guy J. Brown},
Gaussian mixture model (GMM) classifiers have been shown to give good instrument recognition performance for monophonic music played by a single instrument. However, many applications (such as automatic music transcription) require instrument identification from polyphonic, multi-instrumental recordings. We address this problem by incorporating ideas from missing feature theory into a GMM classifier. Specifically, frequency regions that are dominated by energy from an interfering tone are… CONTINUE READING
