In this paper, we present a method for estimating the progression of musical key from an audio signal. We address the problem of local key finding by investigating the possible combination and extension of different previously proposed approaches for global key estimation. In this work, key progression is estimated from the chord progression. Specifically, we introduce key dependency on the harmonic and the metrical structures. A contribution of our work is that we address the problem of… CONTINUE READING
