Recognition of musical phrases requires a specific approach because of the specific structure of most musical phrases. Musical patterns may still be perceived by humans as the same melody, even if differentiated in the time and frequency domains. For the purpose of the automatic recognition of musical phrases, a system using a dynamic time-warping algorithm has been proposed. Relatively, a normalization of the pitch of notes has been applied. Results of the preliminary tests are presented. Conclusions concerning the proposed method of the automatic recognition of musical phrases are derived and presented.
