ORPHEUS : On-line Retrieval from Polyhymnia: the Human-oriented Experimental Utrecht Searcher
01 / 2007 - unknown
The objective of the Orpheus project is to approach the following three fundamental issues in music retrieval: Matching. Given a query theme or melody, determine if it is contained in collection of (possibly longer) melodies or complete works. Polyphonic matching. Given a query melody, determine is it is contained in a polyphonic piece of music. Indexing. Given a large collection of music, build a data structure to efficiently search for those pieces similar to the query.
