Abstract: We introduce the Audio Degradation Toolbox (ADT) for the controlled degradation of audio signals, and propose its usage as a means of evaluating and comparing the robustness of audio processing algorithms. Music recordings encountered in practical applications are subject…

Abstract: In the past decade, non-negative matrix factorisation (NMF) and probabilistic latent component analysis (PLCA) have been used widely in automatic music transcription. Despite their successes, these methods only guarantee that the decomposition converges to a local minimum in the cost…

A Corpus-based Study of Rhythm Patterns

Something new, and, at least to me, exciting. And: it’s not about chords this time, can you believe it?

Accompanying web page is here.

Abstract: We present a corpus-based study of musical rhythm, based on a collection of 4.8…

Abstract: We propose the novel audio feature structural change for the analysis and visualisation of recorded music, and argue that it is related to a particular notion of musical complexity. Structural change is a meta feature that can be calculated…

Songle: A Web Service for Active Music Listening Improved by User Contributions

Abstract: This paper describes a public web service for active music listening, Songle, that enriches music listening experiences by using music-understanding technologies based on signal processing. Although various research-level interfaces and technologies have been developed, it has not been easy…

Abstract. We propose two novel lyrics-to-audio alignment methods which make use of additional chord information. In the first method we extend an existing hidden Markov model (HMM) for lyrics alignment by adding a chord model based on the chroma features…

We present a novel music signal processing task of classifying the tuning of a harpsichord from audio recordings of standard musical works. We report the results of a classification experiment involving six different temperaments, using real harpsichord recordings as well…
