I am going to present the paper titled “A method for structural analysis of Ottoman-Turkish makam music scores” in the 6th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis (FMA 2016). The workshop will take place in the Dublin Institute of Technology, Dublin, Ireland between 15 and 17 June.
The paper (PDF, slides) presents a novel method to extract and semiotically describe the melodic and lyrical organization of a Ottoman-Turkish makam music score using basic string similarity and graph analysis techniques. The code, dataset, experiments and results are all open and the experiments are designed with reproducibility in mind. To access the relevant material and for additional information, please visit the companion page (link) of the paper.
