  • In this paper, we present a system for automatic alignment of textual lyrics with musical audio. Given an input audio signal, structural segmentation is first performed and similar segments are assigned a label by computing the distance between the segment pairs. Using the results of segmentation and hand-labeled paragraphs in lyrics as a pair of input strings, we apply a dynamic programming (DP) algorithm to find the best alignment path between the two strings, achieving segment-to-paragraph… CONTINUE READING
