In the 4th International Workshop of Folk Music Analysis (FMA 2014), Istanbul, Turkey, two papers titled “Towards alignment of score and audio recordings of Ottoman-Turkish makam music” and “Automatic lyrics-to-audio alignment in classical Turkish music” which I have contributed, will be presented.
The first paper describes an extension of the audio-score alignment methodology I have published in Journal of New Music Research (PDF) for note-level alignment of Ottoman-Turkish makam music (OTMM) recordings. The second paper, which I am a co-author of, adapts a state-of-the-art audio-to-lyrics alignment method to OTMM.
The workshop takes place between 12 and 13 June 2014. The workshop has a central goal to foster the application of computational analysis in (ethno)musicology.
