Intonation in unaccompanied singing: accuracy, drift, and a model of reference pitch memory.
This paper presents a study on intonation and intonation drift in unaccompanied singing, and proposes a simple model of reference pitch memory that accounts for many of the effects observed. Singing experiments were conducted ...
Improving automatic music transcription through key detection
(Audio Engineering Society, 2014-01)
In this paper, a method for automatic transcription of polyphonic music is proposed that exploits key information. The proposed system performs key detection using a matching technique with distributions of pitch class ...
Design and use of a hackable digital instrument
This paper introduces the D-Box, a new digital musical instrument specifically designed to elicit unexpected creative uses and to support modification by the performer. Rather than taking a modular approach, the D-Box is ...
Accounting for phase cancellations in non-negative matrix factorization using weighted distances
Techniques based on non-negative matrix factorization (NMF) have been successfully used to decompose a spectrogram of a music recording into a dictionary of templates and activations. While advanced NMF variants often yield ...
