Modelling the Decay of Piano Sounds

We investigate piano acoustics and compare the theoretical temporal decay of individual partials to recordings of real-world piano notes from the RWC Music Database. We first describe the theory behind double decay and beats, known phenomena caused by the interaction…

MedleyDB: a Multitrack Dataset for Annotation-intensive MIR Research

We introduce MedleyDB: a dataset of annotated, royalty-free multitrack recordings. The dataset was primarily developed to support research on melody extraction, addressing important shortcomings of existing collections. For each song we provide melody f0 annotations as well as instrument…

Recently, we have witnessed an increasing use of the source-filter model in music analysis, which is achieved by integrating the source filter model into a non-negative matrix factorisation (NMF) framework or statistical

We propose a novel set of chroma-based audio features inspired by pitch class set theory and show their utility for style analysis of classical music by using them to classify recordings into

Abstract. We propose a novel method for automatic drum transcription from audio that achieves the recognition of individual drums by classifying bar-level drum patterns. Automatic drum transcription has to date been tackled by recognising individual drums or drum combinations. In…

Abstract. This paper presents a comparative study of classification performance in automatic audio chord recognition based on three chroma feature implementations, with the aim of distinguishing effects of frame size, instrumentation, and choice of chroma feature. Research in automatic chord…

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…
