The MAMI Query-By-Voice Experiment: Collecting and annotating vocal queries for music information retrieval
MetadataShow full item record
The MIR research community requires coordinated strategies in dealing with databases for system development and experimentation. Manual annotated files can accelerate the development of accurate analysis tools for music information retrieval. This paper presents background information on an annotated database of vocal queries that is freely available on the Internet. First we outline the design and set up of the experiment through which the vocal queries were generated. Then attention is drawn to the manual annotation for the vocal queries.
