10: Multiple-instrument Automatic Music Transcription

Multiple-instrument Automatic Music Transcription (+applications)

Emmanouil Benetos, Queen Mary University of London

Automatic music transcription is defined as the problem of converting a music recording into some form of music notation; it is considered a core problem in music informatics.

This demonstrator aims to create a general-purpose system for automatic music transcription with the following features:

  • Computationally efficient multiple-instrument transcription
  • Transcription of pitched sounds & percussion
  • Support for non-Western/folk/traditional music
  • Integration of musicological knowledge
  • Using transcription features for large-scale music analysis/visualisation
