Abstract [en]

In this paper, we analyze onset characteristics to try to identify important differences between two famous Turkmen dutar performers in terms of patterns of timing. We first analyzed annotated onset data for equivalent excerpts from recordings by these two musicians. We then analyzed unannotated onset data for a larger set of entire recordings. These analyses showed several conclusions. First, during introductory strumming outside the context of a composed melody, the two have different timing habits. Mylly aga is more consistent and Purli aga more varied ¨ in terms of recurring inter-onset-intervals (IOIs). Second, during through-composed melodies, the timing profiles of the two musicians are very similar. This perhaps reflects the traditional Turkmen emphasis on preserving the form of traditional compositions in great detail and the attention paid to strumming technique. Finally, we found that automatically derived representations of rhythmic patterns, referred to as pulsation matrices, could be useful for identifying departures from typical timing patterns, which we could then analyze in order to understand such variations and their possible significance
