AbstractThe goal of this work is to review how melodic aspects of music are represented in computer applications, and how these representations are extracted from audio signals. This review will serve to define different levels of melodic description. We will use this description scheme to represent melodic aspects of audio in a specific application context, the Sound Palette application, a software tool for content-based analysis and transformations. We will also implement and evaluate some techniques for extracting some of these melodic features.
