Music Structure Analysis of Hindustani Music for Transcription
Pages : 215-218
Music is structured audio comprising the harmonious blend of melody and the rhythmic elements. Transcription of an audio signal involves the essential task of melodic structure analysis at the instances marked by the rhythmic events. Signal processing methods can be used to reveal the music structure of the audio signal using the descriptors of melody and rhythm chosen to describe the particular music tradition. In this work, challenges in developing required algorithms in the analysis of melodic and rhythmic structures of Hindustani music have been explored.
