This paper presents a computational study of the perceptual and musicological audio features that correlate with the structural function of sections in pop songs, specifically the chorus. Choruses have been described as more prominent, more catchy and more memorable than other sections in a song, yet chorus detection applications have always been primarily based on identifying the most-repeated section in a song. Inspired by cognitive research rather than applied signal processing, this… CONTINUE READING
