Abstract

Knowledge of the tempo of a piece of music is not only a very important part of any music transcription system but has many uses on its own, from automatic segmentation to video synchronisation. The purpose of this paper is to investigate the suitability of Empirical Mode Decomposition (EMD) when used for this task. It has already found uses in many areas such as speech processing and biomedical applications where the core physical processes involved in creating the data are of importance. It is for this reason that EMD followed by Hilbert Spectrum calculation was applied to meter analysis.
