A tool for comparison of piano performances

Bora, U
Tufan, S
Bilgen, Semih
In this paper a tool designed for analyzing music performance is introduced. The tool interprets a performance of a piano piece and lists the "errors" it finds by comparing the performance to a pre-recorded expert performance of that piece, utilizing MIDI files. It is primarily intended to be used in piano education. Examples of applications as well as the architecture and design of the tool are given.

This paper presents a two‐stage model that calculates tonal context as a continuous function in time. The model is capable of processing acoustical polyphonic inputs. The first stage is a simple note recogniser that produces pitch‐class note output corresponding to the acoustical input. A bank of leaky integrators constitute the second stage. The integration rates and saturation limits of these integrators vary with each musical event according to the relations among input notes and the candidates of tonal ...
Weighing Diverse Theoretical Models on Turkish Maqam Music Against Pitch Measurements: A Comparison of Peaks Automatically Derived from Frequency Histograms with Proposed Scale Tones
Bozkurt, Baris; Yarman, Ozan; Karaosmanoglu, M. Kemal; Akkoc, Can (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
Since the early 20th century, various theories have been advanced in order to mathematically explain and notate modes of Traditional Turkish music known as maqams. In this article, maqam scales according to various theoretical models based on different tunings are compared with pitch measurements obtained from select recordings of master Turkish performers in order to study their level of match with analysed data. Chosen recordings are subjected to a fully computerized sequence of signal processing algorith...
Material Processuality: Alternative Grounds for Design Research
Tönük Kruıthof, Damla (Informa UK Limited, 2020-01-01)
This article opens discussion on the positivist epistemology underlying the understandings of materials in design research that have been brought along as a result of theory and methods inherited from engineering and psychology. Examining the ambitions of work that seeks to operationalize knowledge created by these methods in the design process, we propose that attending to the processuality of material forms is a more adequate way for design research to capture the multiplicity of materials. We develop thi...
Transitioning from Physical to Digital Sketchbooks for Industrial Design Education
Şener Pedgley, Bahar (Common Ground Research Networks, 2015-01-01)
An essential element of industrial design education is the project sketchbook, traditionally submitted as a physical (paper-based) portfolio. However, the ability for such sketchbooks to capture design decision-making and project progress made through increasingly digital design tools is ineffective. To help formulate a solution to this problem, the authors undertook a feasibility study to examine opportunities and barriers of transitioning from physical to digital student sketchbooks. Stage 1 of the resear...
Computational Models in Architecture: Understanding Multi-Dimensionality and Mapping
Sorguç, Arzu (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-08-01)
The aim of this paper is to discuss computational thinking and parametric design and thus "what model is" in the realm of mathematics in architecture. Here we investigate how multi-dimensionality and reference systems should be contemplated, along with what mapping is and how it is related with algorithms in computational design. Set theory and functional relations are re-visited and similarity/similitude concepts and the importance of nondimensional parameters relating different reference systems (interpre...
