Humming Method for Content-Based Music Information Retrieval

  title={Humming Method for Content-Based Music Information Retrieval},
  author={Cristina de la Bandera and Ana M. Barbancho and Lorenzo J. Tard{\'o}n and Simone Sammartino and Isabel Barbancho},
In this paper a humming method for music information retrieval is presented. The system uses a database with real songs and does not need another type of symbolic representation of them. The system employs an original fingerprint based on chroma vectors to characterize the humming and the references songs. With this fingerprint, it is possible to get the hummed songs without needed of transcription of the notes of the humming or of the songs. The system showed a good performance on Pop/Rock and… 
Use of Tonic and Raga as Indices for a Query by Example based Music Information Retrieval System
A Query By Example (QBE) based Music Information Retrieval system is proposed, where the characteristics of Carnatic music are used as indices for identifying similar matches to an input song.

This study compared and analyzed 15 CBMR (Content-based Music Retrieval) systems accessible on the web in terms of DB size and type, query type, access point, input and output type, and search
Music Retrieval Using Onomatopoeic Query
A music retrieval method that uses onomatopoeia query to enable easy and intuitive retrieval of music even for users without musical knowledge, and ranks a musical piece on the basis of similarity.
A Study on Music Retrieval based on Audio Fingerprinting
This thesis proposes a fast Hamming space search method for audio fingerprinting based on query multiplexing, by using a suffix array inspired by the Locality-Sensitive Hashing (LSH) algorithm, which is a probabilistic algorithm for solving the nearest neighbor search in high-dimensional spaces.
This paper presents a comparison of different normalization methods applied to the set of feature vectors of music pieces. Test results show the influence of min-max and Zero-Mean normalization
Music Information Retrieval Using Hit Count Vector
Roughly speaking, music can be easily and cheaply accessed via Internet, but at the same time, finding certain music is still a difficult task. In this paper, a music retrieval system based on
Improvement of Indexing Methods for Audio Fingerprinting Systems
In music retrieval methods based on audio fingerprints, a large database is required in order to compare the fingerprints extracted from the query. It is necessary to develop an efficient search
Index Compression for Audio Fingerprinting Systems Based on Compressed Suffix Array
A method to reduce the space cost by compressing the index of the database using a compressed suffix array, taking advantage of the fact that the repetitive characters occur frequently in higher bits of the sorted audio fingerprint data.
A Survey of Music Recommendation Systems and Future Perspectives
Along with the rapid expansion of digital music formats, managing and searching for songs has become significant. Though music information retrieval (MIR) techniques have been made successfully in
Analysis of Song/Artist Latent Features and Its Application for Song Search
This paper proposes two concepts of artist-song relationships: overall similarity and prominent affinity, and proposes three applications for song search that are beneficial for searching for songs according to the users' various search intents.


Query by humming: musical information retrieval in an audio database
A system for querying an audio database by humming is described along with a scheme for representing the melodic information in a song as relative pitch changes, and the performance results of system indicating its effectiveness are presented.
Query by humming: matching humming query to polyphonic audio
Developed algorithms for key steps of a QBH system including the melody feature extraction method frompolyphonic audio and humming, their representation for matching, and matching method between the represented melody information from polyphonicaudio and humming are presented.
An efficient approach to humming transcription for query-by-humming system
A two-layer index includes tune features and profile features, which provides criteria for the coarse matching in the first two stages of matching, while in the last stage, the method performs a precise matching.

Challenging Uncertainty in Query by Humming Systems: A Fingerprinting Approach
A fingerprinting (FP) algorithm for representing salient melodic information so as to better compare potentially noisy voice queries with target melodies in a database and demonstrate that the proposed FP technique is more robust under uncertainty, particularly for queries by musically untrained users.
A Query-by-Singing System for Retrieving Karaoke Music
To facilitate an efficient and accurate search of a large music database, multiple-pass dynamic time warping (DTW) combined with multiple-level data abstraction (MLDA) to compare the similarities of melodies is employed.
