Rhythmic Similarity through Elaboration
MetadataShow full item record
Rhythmic similarity techniques for audio tend to evaluate how close to identical two rhythms are. This paper proposes a similarity metric based on rhythmic elaboration that matches rhythms that share the same beats regardless of tempo or identicalness. Elaborations can help an application decide where to transition between songs. Potential applications include automatically generating a non-stop music mix or sonically browsing a music library.
