A Cross-Version Approach for Harmonic Analysis of Music Recordings

Verena Konz & Meinard Müller
The automated extraction of chord labels from audio recordings is a central task in music information retrieval. Here, the chord labeling is typically performed on a specific audio version of a piece of music, produced under certain recording conditions, played on specific instruments and characterized by individual styles of the musicians. As a consequence, the obtained chord labeling results are strongly influenced by version-dependent characteristics. In this chapter, we show that analyzing the harmonic properties...
