Abstract:We introduce the MIR task of segmenting melodies into phrases, summarise the musicological and psychological background to the task and review existing computational methods before presenting a new model, IDyOM, for melodic segmentation based on statistical learning and information-dynamic analysis. The performance of the model is compared to several existing algorithms in predicting the annotated phrase boundaries in a large corpus of folk music. The results indicate that four algorithms produce acceptable re…
