2007 (English)In: Proceedings of the Conference on Sound and Music Computing (SMC), Sound and music Computing network , 2007, 326-329 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, the problem of the automatic identification of a singer is investigated using methods known from speaker identification. Ways for using world models are presented and the usage of Cepstral Mean Subtraction (CMS) is evaluated. In order to minimize the difference due to musical style we use a novel data set, consisting of samples from greekRembetiko music, being very similar in style. The data set also explores for the first time the influence of the recording quality, by including many historical gramophone recordings. Experimental evaluations show the benefits of world models for frame selection and CMS, resulting in an average classification accuracy of about 81% among 21 different singers.
