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?

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 the task of detecting instrumental solos in polyphonic music recordings, and the usage of a set of four audio features for vocal and instrumental activity detection. Three of the features are based on the prior extraction of…

Abstract. The automatic detection and transcription of musical chords from audio is an established music computing task. The choice of chord profiles and higher-level time-series modelling have received a lot of attention, resulting in methods…
