Generation of Musical Scores of Percussive Un-Pitched Instruments from Automatically Detected Events

Document Thumbnail

This publication addresses the generation of a musical score of percussive un-pitched instruments. A musical event is defined as the occurrence of a sound of a musical instrument. The presented method is restricted to events of percussive instruments without determinate pitch. Events are detected in the audio signal and classified into instrument classes, the temporal positions of the events are quantized on a tatum grid, musical meter is estimated and preparatory beats are identified. The identification of rhythmic patterns on basis of the frequency of their occurrence enables a robust identification of the tempo and gives valuable cues for the positioning of the bar lines using musical knowledge.
