Fundamentals of Music Processing

The main goal of this tutorial is to give an introduction to music processing with a particular focus on audio-related analysis and retrieval tasks. Well-established topics are selected to serve as motivating application scenarios. Including numerous figures and sound examples, this tutorial is intended to suite a wide and interdisciplinary audience with no particular background in music or audio processing. The tutorial starts with some fundamental material on music representations and the Fourier transform - concepts that are required throughout the tutorial. In the subsequent parts, concrete music processing tasks serve as starting points for our investigations. Depending on the interest of the audience, the following topics may be covered:

* Audio Features
* Music Synchronization
* Audio Structure Analysis
* Tempo and Beat Tracking
* Content-Based Audio Retrieval
* Source Separation

In many parts of this tutorial, we follow the recent textbook "Fundamentals of Music Processing" (Springer, 2015, www.music-processing.de), where one can find a more comprehensive treatment of most of the tutorial's topics.

Bio of presenter:

Meinard Müller studied mathematics (Diplom) and computer science (Ph.D.) at the University of Bonn, Germany. In 2002/2003, he conducted postdoctoral research in combinatorics at the Mathematical Department of Keio University, Japan. In 2007, he finished his Habilitation at Bonn University in the field of multimedia retrieval. From 2007 to 2012, he was a member of the Saarland University and the Max-Planck Institut für Informatik leading the research group "Multimedia Information Retrieval and Music Processing" within the Cluster of Excellence on "Multimodal Computing and Interaction". Since September 2012, Meinard Müller holds a professorship for Semantic Audio Processing at the International Audio Laboratories Erlangen, which is a joint institution of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) and the The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits IIS. His recent research interests include music processing, music information retrieval, audio signal processing, and motion processing. Meinard Müller has been a member of the IEEE Audio and Acoustic Signal Processing Technical Committee from 2010 to 2015 and is a member of the Board of Directors of the International Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR) since 2009. He has co-authored more than 100 peer-reviewed scientific papers, wrote a monograph titled "Information Retrieval for Music and Motion" (Springer, 2007) as well as a textbook titled "Fundamentals of Music Processing" (Springer, 2015, www.music-processing.de).
