Alignment and Timeline Construction for Incomplete Analogue Audience Recordings of Historical Live Music Concerts

Document Thumbnail

Analogue recordings pose specific problems during automatic alignment, such as distortion due to physical degradation, or differences in tape speed during recording, copying, and digitization. Oftentimes, recordings are incomplete, exhibiting gaps with different lengths. In this paper we propose a method to align multiple digitized analogue recordings of same concerts of varying quality and song segmentations. The process includes the automatic construction of a reference concert timeline. We evaluate alignment methods on a synthetic dataset and apply our algorithm to real-world data.
