Concepts and methods for the description and annotation of the semiotic structure of music pieces

30 January 2014

Time: 4:30 - 5:30pm
Venue: CS 414 4th Floor, Computer Science Bldg Queen Mary, University of London Mile End London E1 4NS

Seminar by our guest Frédéric BIMBOT - IRISA, Rennes (France). Interest has been steadily growing in the MIR community for the description of music structure, i.e. the global organization of music pieces into large-scale sectional units. Among several initiatives, our research group has been developing concepts and methodologies for the definition and annotation of the semiotic structure of music pieces, i.e. the metaphoric representation of similarities and internal relationships within a music piece, as a low-rate stream of arbitrary symbols from a limited alphabet. In concrete terms, this effort has lead to the release of several data sets annotated accordingly (over 380 pieces in total).

Frédéric BIMBOT - IRISA, Rennes (France)

Interest has been steadily growing in the MIR community for the
description of music structure, i.e. the global organization of music
pieces into large-scale sectional units. Among several initiatives,
our research group has been developing concepts and methodologies for
the definition and annotation of the semiotic structure of music
pieces, i.e. the metaphoric representation of similarities and
internal relationships within a music piece, as a low-rate stream of
arbitrary symbols from a limited alphabet. In concrete terms, this
effort has lead to the release of several data sets annotated
accordingly (over 380 pieces in total).
