Automatic Mode Estimation of Persian Musical Signals

Musical mode is central to maqamic musical traditions that span from Western China to Southern Europe. A mode usually represents the scale and is to some extent an indication of the emotional content of a piece. Knowledge of the mode is useful in searching multicultural archives of maqamic musical signals. Thus, the modal information is worth inclusion in metadata of a file. An automatic mode classification algorithm will have potential applications in music recommendation and play list generation, where the pieces can be ordered based on a perceptually accepted criterion such as the mode. It has the possibility of being used as a framework for music composition and synthesis. This paper presents an algorithm for classification of Persian audio musical signals, based on a generative approach, i.e., Gaussian Mixture Models (GMM), where chroma is used as the feature. The results will be compared with a chroma-based method with a Manhattan distance measure that was previously developed by ourselves.
