This paper describes the submission to the MIREX 06 (Music Information Retrieval EXchange) Audio Cover Song task delivered by Fraunhofer IDMT. A method to detect cover songs by comparing the most salient melodies of musical pieces is proposed, based on the assumption that cover versions of one song contain the same melody. To this end, the predominant melody of the musical pieces to be considered is extracted and characteristic parts are sought for. The melodic similarity between the pieces is calculated and derived from these values, a distance matrix is constructed.
