  • Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Hazan, Amaury; Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Serra, Xavier (MIT Press, 2008)
    We describe an evolutionary approach to inducing a generative model of expressive music performance for Jazz saxophone. We begin with a collection of audio recordings of real Jazz saxophone performances from which we extract ...
  • Gouyon, Fabien; Widmer, Gerhard; Serra, Xavier; Flexer, Arthur (University of California Press, 2006)
    This article brings forward the question of which acoustic features are the most adequate for identifying beats computationally in acoustic music pieces. We consider many different features computed on consecutive short ...
  • Font Corbera, Frederic; Serrà Julià, Joan; Serra, Xavier (ACM Association for Computer Machinery, 2015)
    Collaborative tagging systems have emerged as a successful solution for annotating contributed resources to online sharing platforms, facilitating searching, browsing, and organizing their contents. To aid users in the ...
  • Wright, Matthew; Beauchamp, James; Fitz, Kelly; Rodet, Xavier; Röbel, Axel; Serra, Xavier; Wakefield, Gregory (Cambridge University Press, 2000)
    We compared six sound analysis/synthesis systems used for computer music. Each system analysed the same collection of twenty-seven varied input sounds, and output the results in Sound Description Interchange Format (SDIF). ...
  • Srinivasamurthy, Ajay; Holzapfel, Andre; Ganguli, Kaustuv Kanti; Serra, Xavier (Frontiers, 2017)
    This article provides insights into aspects of tempo and rhythmic elaboration in Hindustani music, based on a study of a large corpus of recorded performances. Typical tempo developments and stress patterns within a ...
  • Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Pérez Carrillo, Alfonso Antonio, 1977-; Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2011)
    We present a machine learning approach to the problem of identifying performers from their interpretative styles. In particular, we investigate how violinists express their view of the musical content in audio recordings ...
  • Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Serra, Xavier (Elsevier, 2010)
    We present a pattern recognition approach to the task of identifying performers from their interpretative styles. We investigate how professional musicians express their view of the musical content of musical pieces and ...
  • Gulati, Sankalp; Bellur, Ashwin; Salamon, Justin; Ranjani, H. G.; Ishwar, Vignesh; Murthy, Hema A.; Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2014)
    The tonic is a fundamental concept in Indian art music. It is the base pitch, which an artist chooses in order to construct the melodies during a rāg(a) rendition, and all accompanying instruments are tuned using the tonic ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Zanin, Massimiliano; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Serra, Xavier (Elsevier, 2012)
    The use of community detection algorithms is explored within the framework of cover song identification, i.e. the automatic detection of different audio renditions of the same underlying musical piece. Until now, this task ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975-; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Serra, Xavier (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2008)
    We present a new technique for audio signal comparison based on tonal subsequence alignment and its application to detect cover versions (i.e., different performances of the same underlying musical piece). Cover song ...
  • Font Corbera, Frederic; Serrà Julià, Joan; Serra, Xavier (Elsevier, 2014)
    Online sharing platforms often rely on collaborative tagging systems for annotating content. In this way, users themselves annotate and describe the shared contents using textual labels, commonly called tags. These annotations ...
  • Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2014)
  • Purwins, Hendrick; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Grachten, Maarten; Hazan, Amaury; Marxer Piñón, Ricard; Serra, Xavier (Elsevier, 2008)
    We present a review on perception and cognition models designed for or applicable to music. An emphasis is put on computational implementations. We include findings from different disciplines: neuroscience, psychology, ...
  • Purwins, Hendrick; Grachten, Maarten; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Hazan, Amaury; Marxer Piñón, Ricard; Serra, Xavier (Elsevier, 2008)
    In Part I [Purwins H, Herrera P, Grachten M, Hazan A, Marxer R, Serra X. Computational models of music perception and cognition I: The perceptual and cognitive processing chain. Physics of Life Reviews 2008, in press, ...
  • Serrà Julià, Joan; Serra, Xavier; Andrzejak, Ralph Gregor (Institute of Physics (IOP), 2009)
    There is growing evidence that nonlinear time series analysis techniques can be used to successfully characterize, classify, or process signals derived from realworld dynamics even though these are not necessarily deterministic ...
  • Fuhrmann, Ferdinand; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2009)
    In this paper we present an algorithm for segmenting musical audio data. Our aim is to identify solo instrument phrases in polyphonic music. We extract relevant features from the audio to be input into our algorithm. A ...
  • Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Hazan, Amaury; Gómez Gutiérrez, Emilia, 1975-; Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Serra, Xavier (Taylor & Francis (Routledge), 2005)
    If-then rules are one of the most expressive and intuitive knowledge representations and their application to represent musical knowledge raises particularly interesting questions. In this paper, we describe an approach ...
  • Roma Trepat, Gerard; Janer Mestres, Jordi; Kersten, Stefan; Schirosa, Mattia; Herrera Boyer, Perfecto, 1964-; Serra, Xavier (Hindawi, 2010)
    In this paper we present a method to search for environmental sounds in large unstructured databases of user-submitted audio, using a general sound events taxonomy from ecological acoustics. We discuss the use of Support ...
  • Urbano, Julián; Schedl, Markus; Serra, Xavier (Springer, 2013)
    The field of Music Information Retrieval has always acknowledged the need for rigorous scientific evaluations, and several efforts have set out to develop and provide the infrastructure, technology and methodologies needed ...
  • Maestre Gómez, Esteban; Ramírez, Rafael,1966-; Kersten, Stefan; Serra, Xavier (MIT Press, 2009)
    Here we describe an approach to the expressive synthesis of jazz saxophone melodies that reuses audio recordings and carefully concatenates note samples. The aim is to generate an expressive audio sequence from the analysis ...
