Identifying Saxophonists from Their Playing Styles

Document Thumbnail

This paper describes a machine learning approach to the problem of identifying professional musicians from their playing style. We focus on the identification of jazz saxophonists by studying how they express and communicate their view of the musical and emotional content of musical pieces (performed from a musical score). In particular, we investigate expressive deviations of parameters such as pitch, timing, amplitude and timbre in monophonic audio recordings. We describe how we extract a symbolic description from the audio recordings and how we use this symbolic description to train a performance-based interpreter classifier.
