Music description extraction tool

A set of extractors of music content descriptors that can be used with songs, loops or monophonic phrases. Extraction is done at the melodic-harmonic, rhythmic, and instrumental layers. Morphological description for sound samples (i.e. isolated sounds like sound effects or instrument notes) is also included.

Music material is characterized in terms of tick, beat, metric, rhythmic complexity, rhythmicity, and harmonicity.

The extracted descriptors are usable in music databases for expanding the retrieval capabilities towards semantic functionalities.
