Interactive Learning of Signal Processing Through Music
In this article, we show how music may serve as a vehicle to support education in signal processing. Using Fourier analysis as a concrete example, we show how the music domain provides motivating andExpand
libfmp: A Python Package for Fundamentals of Music Processing
  • Meinard Müller, Frank Zalkow
  • Computer Science
  • Journal of Open Source Software
  • 2021
TLDR
The Python package libfmp is introduced, which provides implementations of well-established model-based algorithms for various MIR tasks (with a focus on the audio domain), including beat tracking, onset detection, chord recognition, music synchronization, version identification, music segmentation, novelty detection, and audio decomposition. Expand
Systematic approaches to music rehearsal segmentation
TLDR
A framework which adopts an unsupervised segmentation strategy that can be robust to expected variability in 'meaningful' repeats is proposed, which synthesises the ground truth based on real recordings, and gets insight into the performance of the methods. Expand
Exploiting Temporal Dependencies for Cross-Modal Music Piece Identification
TLDR
This paper presents a strategy that aligns sequences of embeddings learned from sheet music scans and audio snippets, and shows that the retrieval can be further improved by introducing an attention mechanism to the embedding learning model that reduces the effects of tempo variations in music. Expand
DNN-Based Matrix Factorization with Applications to Drum Sound Decomposition
Non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) is an iterative optimization algorithm based on update rules that preserve non-negativity. NMF generates a low-rank approximation of a non-negative inputExpand
Musical agents: A typology and state of the art towards Musical Metacreation
TLDR
This review of musical agents combines the terminology of Generative Arts (artistic practice) and the scientific literature of Computational Creativity, Multi-Agent Systems (MAS), and Artificial Intelligence to propose possible future steps in the field. Expand
Condition Monitoring of Mechanical Equipment Using Bilinear Modeling of Vibrations
TLDR
Investigating the application of multivariate analysis methods on vibration data obtained from a diesel engine using acoustic contact microphones showed promising results, but further research is needed before vibration sensors can replace other sensors. Expand
Learning to Read and Follow Music in Complete Score Sheet Images
TLDR
This paper proposes the first system that directly performs score following in full-page, completely unprocessed sheet images, based on incoming audio and a given image of the score, which outperforms current state-of-the-art image-based score followers in terms of alignment precision. Expand
Score Following as a Multi-Modal Reinforcement Learning Problem
TLDR
This paper designs end-to-end multi-modal RL agents that simultaneously learn to listen to music recordings, read the scores from images of sheet music, and follow the music along in the sheet. Expand
Influence of distortion on guitar chord structures: Acoustic effects and perceptual correlates
Since the exploration of distortion as a means of expression in the 1950s, the electric guitar has become a primary instrument in popular music, especially in rock and metal music. Despite thisExpand

Pattern Discovery Techniques for Music Audio
TLDR
This work aims to automate the task of music analysis, which involves transcription of audio into a representation with a similarity or distance metric, the search for similar segments, forming clusters ofsimilar segments, and explaining music in terms of these clusters. Expand
RWC Music Database: Popular, Classical and Jazz Music Databases
TLDR
The design policy and specifications of the RWC Music Database are described, a music database (DB) that is available to researchers for common use and research purposes, which contains four original DBs: the Popular Music Database (100 pieces), Royalty-Free Music Database(15 pieces), Classical Music Database ($50 pieces), and Jazz Music Database (£50 pieces). Expand
Music Structure Analysis from Acoustic Signals
Music is full of structure, including sections, sequences of distinct musical textures, and the repetition of phrases or entire sections. The analysis of music audio relies upon feature vectors thatExpand
Audio thumbnailing of popular music using chroma-based representations
TLDR
This work presents a system for producing short, representative samples (or "audio thumbnails") of selections of popular music, and presents a development of the chromagram, a variation on traditional time-frequency distributions that seeks to represent the cyclic attribute of pitch perception, known as chroma.

  • 2003
TLDR
This method, called RefraiD, can detect all the chorus sections in a song and estimate both ends of each section and can also detect modulated chorus sections by introducing a similarity that enables modulated repetition to be judged correctly. Expand
Visualizing music and audio using self-similarity
  • J. Foote

  • 1999
TLDR
The acoustic similarity between any two instants of an audio recording is displayed in a 2D representation, allowing identification of structural and rhythmic characteristics, as well as tempo and structure extraction. Expand

Analyzing Song Structure with Spectral Clustering
TLDR
Techniques from spectral graph theory are applied to analyze repeated patterns in musical recordings and produce a low-dimensional encoding of repetition structure, and exposes the hierarchical relationships among structural components at differing levels of granularity. Expand
