Computational Corpus Analysis: A Case Study on Jazz Solos
It is concluded that audio recordings can build a reasonable basis for conducting corpus analysis, and this corpus analysis method is transferred to jazz music using the Weimar Jazz Database, which contains high-level symbolic transcriptions of jazz solos along with the audio recordings.
A Corpus for Computational Research of Turkish Makam Music
This paper presents a corpus of Turkish makam music created within the scope of the CompMusic project, intended for computational research and the primary considerations during the creation of the corpus reflect some criteria, namely, purpose, coverage, completeness, quality and re-usability.
Corpus COFLA
Flamenco is a music tradition from Southern Spain that attracts a growing community of enthusiasts around the world. Its unique melodic and rhythmic elements, the typically spontaneous and improvised

Computational Analysis of Turkish Makam Music: Review of State-of-the-Art and Challenges
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.
An Overview of Hindustani Music in the Context of Computational Musicology
The deliberation will mainly focus on the melodic aspect of music making and will attempt to provide a musicological base for the main features associated with the melody: intonation and improvisation; thus covering the soundscape on the micro as well as macro level.
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.
In Search of Automatic Rhythm Analysis Methods for Turkish and Indian Art Music
This work defines and describes three relevant rhythm annotation tasks for these cultures—beat tracking, meter estimation, and downbeat detection, and evaluates several methodologies from the state of the art in Music Information Retrieval for these tasks, using manually annotated datasets of Turkish and Indian music.
Towards a (better) Definition of Annotated MIR Corpora
A survey and consolidation report on the nature of the an- notated corpora used and shared in MIR, with proposals for the axis against which corpora can be described so to enable effective comparison and the inherent influence this has on tasks performed using them.
Linking Scores and Audio Recordings in Makam Music of Turkey
This paper presents a method for linking musically relevant sections in a score of a piece from makam music of Turkey (MMT) to the corresponding time intervals of an audio recording of the same piece.
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.
