Automatic Segmentation of Concert Recordings via a Heuristic Approach
In the age of digital recordings, many institutions maintain large databases of concert recordings. While segmentation of these concert recordings for mastering and production is a time-consuming task for humans, this paper presents a novel heuristic algorithm to automate that process. Building on other work in audio segmentation, technique from the music informatics community is used to detect events, classify them, and segment entire concert recordings unsupervised. A brief review of previous work and the methodology used in this approach are provided, as well as the results obtained on a corpus of sixteen concerts.
