Title: Interactive Manipulation of Musical Melody in Audio Recordings
Issue Date: 2017-07-12
Description: The objective of this project is to develop an interactive technique to manipulate melody in musical recordings. The proposed methodology is based on the use of melody detection methods combined with the invertible constant Q transform (CQT), which allows a high-quality modification of musical content. This work will consist of several stages, the first of which will focus on monophonic recordings and subsequently we will explore methods to manipulate polyphonic recordings. The long-term objective is to alter a melody of a piece of music in such a way that it may sound similar to another. We have set, as and end goal, to allows users to perform melody manipulation and experiment with their music collection. To achieve this goal, we will devise approaches for high quality polyphonic melody manipulation, using a dataset of melodic content and mixed audio recordings. To ensure the system's usability, a listening test or user-study evaluation of the algorithm will be performed.
