—A major limitation of current Optical Music Recog- nition (OMR) systems is that their performance strongly depends on the variability in the input images. What for human readers seems almost trivial—e.g., reading music in a range of different font types in different contexts—can drastically reduce the output quality of OMR models. This paper introduces the 19MT-OMR corpus that can be used to test OMR models on a diverse set of sources. We illustrate this challenge by discussing several…

Optical Music Recognition: State of the Art and Major Challenges

This paper reviews relevant works in OMR, including fundamental methods and significant outcomes, and highlights different stages of the OMR pipeline, which often lack standard input and output representation and standardised evaluation.

How current optical music recognition systems are becoming useful for digital libraries

This work takes an OMR system based on the traditional pipeline and an end-to-end system, which represent the current state of the art, and illustrates in proof-of-concept experiments their applicability in retrieval settings, and indicates that in some settings, current OMR can be used as a general tool for enriching digital libraries.

A Neural Approach for Full-Page Optical Music Recognition of Mensural Documents

A full-page OMR system for Mensural notation scores that consists of simply two processes, which are enough to extract the symbolic music information from a full page, using Selectional Auto-Encoders to extract single staff regions and end-to-end staff-level recognition based on Convolutional Recurrent Neural Networks for retrieving the music notation.

A Case for Intrinsic Evaluation of Optical Music Recognition

It is argued that the problems with modeling the subsequent editing workflow can be de-coupled from general OMR system development using an intrinsic evaluation approach, and sketch out how to do this.

Towards a Standard Testbed for Optical Music Recognition: Definitions, Metrics, and Page Images

It is proposed that progress in Optical Music Recognition (OMR) has been held up for years by the absence of anything resembling the standard testbeds in use in other fields that face difficult evaluation problems, and how this problem may be mitigated.

Understanding Optical Music Recognition

This work provides a robust definition of OMR and its relationship to related fields, analyzes how OMR inverts the music encoding process to recover the musical notation and the musical semantics from documents, and proposes a taxonomy of O MR, with most notably a novel taxonomic of applications.

Exploring the two-dimensional nature of music notation for score recognition with end-to-end approaches

Alternative output representations to perform music symbol recognition with state-of-the-art end-to-end neural technologies are explored and one of the proposed encodings outperforms the results obtained by the standard one.

Incremental Supervised Staff Detection

Although the evaluated approach has structural flaws that lead to imprecise results and deficits when detecting non-straight staves, it can serve as a viable starting point for future staff detection systems.

A Baseline for General Music Object Detection with Deep Learning

A baseline for general detection of musical symbols with deep learning is presented and the first time that competing music object detection systems from the machine learning paradigm are directly compared to each other.

DoReMi: First glance at a universal OMR dataset

This paper provides a first look at DoReMi, an OMR dataset that addresses these challenges, and a baseline object detection model to assess its utility, and opens a new course of discussions that would ultimately aid that goal.
