FOLK MUSIC - Intelligent system for the identification of similarities and differences between the Greek-Cypriot, Greek, Turkish-Cypriot and Turkish folk music

Duration: 36 months (2012 - 2015)

Start: 2/4/2012

Project Website:https://www.cs.ucy.ac.cy/projects/folk/

Principal Investigator: Χρίστος Σχίζας

Main Funding Source: ΙΠΕ-ΔΕΣΜΗ 2009-2010 ΜΗ ΔΙΑΡΘΡΩΤΙΚΑ

Total Cost: 99 300

In this research program, we have created a database which includes folk music from Cyprus, Turkey and middle east, Western melodies and Byzantine music. In this database, we include recordings that were made by the researchers of our group using professional audio equipment. We have created computational tools for analysing and extracting low level, mid level and high level features that are used for similarity detection between the songs in our database. Examples of high level features that are created include note segmentation, ornamentation detection, tonic and scale identification. We have used techniques for tonal similarity between pairs of songs using pitch histograms.

Additionally. we studied the timbre characteristics of a collection of songs from our database and we followed classification and clustering approaches to model and compare groups of songs. A number of matlab scripts are provided in a user friendly environment for visualization of song characteristics, pair wise comparison, note segmentation and other attributes. This research was funded from the Republic of Cyprus through the Cyprus research promotion foundation by the research grant ΑΝΘΡΩΠΙΣΤΙΚΕΣ / ΑΝΘΡΩ / 0311(BE) / 19, and also supported by the University of Cyprus.

Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Cyprus. The Department has experienced significant growth over the last few years with strong groups in artificial intelligence, computer architecture, computer networks, data management, graphics and virtual reality, internet computing, software engineering and theoretical computer science. The Department offers a Bachelor degree in Computer Science with 7 different specializations as well as a number of Master degrees and a Ph.D. degree in Computer Science.

The Department has a strong research infrastructure comprising high-performance clusters and storage area networks, cloud computing facilities, smart-phones and sensing devices and virtual reality equipment. Since 2005, our Department has been involved in more than 160 research projects funded from both the European Union and the Cyprus Research Promotion Foundation with total funding of over 21.5 million euros.
