music transcription; rhythm analysis

This publication presents a new method for the detection and classification of un-pitched percussive instruments in real world musical signals. The derived information is an important pre-requisite for the creation of a musical score, i.e. automatic transcription, and for the automatic extraction of semantic meaningful meta-data, e.g. tempo and musical meter. The proposed method applies Independent Subspace Analysis using Non-Negative Independent Component Analysis and principles of Prior Subspace Analysis. An important extension of Prior Subspace Analysis is the identification of frequency subspaces of percussive instruments from the signal itself. The frequency subspaces serve as information for the detection of the percussive events and the subsequent classification of the occurring instruments. Results are reported on 40 manually transcribed test items.
