This work addresses the problem of melodic motif spotting, given a query, in Carnatic music. [...] Key Method In the first pass, the rough longest common subsequence (RLCS) matching is performed between the saddle points of the pitch contours of the reference motif and the musical piece. These saddle points corresponding to quasi-stationary points of the motifs, are relevant entities of the raga. Multiple sequences are identified in this step, not all of which correspond to the the motif that is queried.Expand
