Abstract

Fostered by the introduction of the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange (MIREX) competition, the number of systems which calculate Symbolic Melodic Similarity has recently increased considerably. In order to understand the state of the art, we provide a comparative analysis of existing algorithms. The analysis is based on eight criteria that help characterising the systems, and highlighting strengths and weaknesses. We also propose a taxonomy which classifies algorithms based on their approach. Both taxonomy and criteria are fruitfully exploited for providing input for new forthcoming research in the area.
