Sound spotting: a frame-based approach

Spevak, Christian and Polfreman, Richard (2001) Sound spotting: a frame-based approach At 2nd Annual International Symposium on Music Information Retrieval 2001. 15 - 17 Oct 2001. , pp. 35-36.

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Poster)


We present a system for content-based retrieval of perceptually similar sound events in audio documents (‘sound spotting’, using a query by example. The system consists of three discrete stages: a front-end for feature extraction, a self-organizing map, and a pattern matching unit. Our paper introduces the approach, describes the separate modules and discusses some preliminary results and future research.
