In this paper we focus on the characterization of singing styles in world music. We develop a set of contour features capturing pitch structure and melodic embellishments. Using these features we train a binary classifier to distinguish vocal from non-vocal contours and learn a dictionary of singing style elements. Each contour is mapped to the dictionary elements and each recording is summarized as the histogram of its contour mappings. We use K-means clustering on the recording… CONTINUE READING
