Dr. Olivier Lartillot, Universitetet i Oslo: “A comprehensive framework for computational music analysis: MIRtoolbox and MiningSuite

During this presentation, Dr. Olivier Lartillot will give an overview of MIRtoolbox - a Matlab application enabling the extraction of a large range of audio and musical descriptions from recordings. MIRtoolbox is designed to be easy to use both for teaching at any level and for advanced research in musicology, signal analysis and music cognition. One initial aim of MIRtoolbox was to study the relationship between musical features and emotions evoked by music. MIRtoolbox focuses on signal-processing-based approaches that offer limited understanding of music. Lartillot is also developing computational methods for the analysis of notated music, starting from motivic analysis and aiming at building a comprehensive framework where audio and score are combined together.
