Music is a form of expression that often requires interaction between players. If one wishes to interact in such a musical way with a computer, it is necessary for the machine to be able to interpret the input given by the human to find its musical meaning. In this work, we propose a system capable of detecting basic rhythmic features that can allow an application to synchronize its output with the rhythm given by the user, without having any prior agreement or requirement on the possible input. The system is described in detail and an evaluation is given through simulation using quantitative metrics. The evaluation shows that the system can detect tempo and meter consistently under certain settings, and could be a solid base for further developments leading to a system robust to rhythmically changing inputs.

Abstract

Music is a form of expression that often requires interaction between players. If one wishes to interact in such a musical way with a computer, it is necessary for the machine to be able to interpret the input given by the human to find its musical meaning. In this work, we propose a system capable of detecting basic rhythmic features that can allow an application to synchronize its output with the rhythm given by the user, without having any prior agreement or requirement on the possible input. The system is described in detail and an evaluation is given through simulation using quantitative metrics. The evaluation shows that the system can detect tempo and meter consistently under certain settings, and could be a solid base for further developments leading to a system robust to rhythmically changing inputs.
