  "abstract": "<p>Orchset is intended to be used as a dataset for the development and evaluation of melody extraction algorithms. This collection contains 64 audio excerpts focused on symphonic music. with their corresponding annotation of the melody.</p>\n\n<p>Melody is here defined as &ldquo;the single (monophonic) pitch sequence that a listener might reproduce if asked to whistle or hum a piece of polyphonic music&rdquo;.</p>\n\n<p>The dataset creation comprised several tasks: excerpts selection, recording sessions of people singing along with the excerpts, analysis of the recordings and melody annotation. A complete description of the dataset and the creation methodology is presented in this paper:</p>\n\n<blockquote>\n<p>Bosch, J., Marxer, R., Gomez, E., &ldquo;Evaluation and Combination of Pitch Estimation Methods for Melody Extraction in Symphonic Classical Music&rdquo;, Journal of New Music Research (2016)</p>\n</blockquote>\n\n<p>Please Acknowledge Orchset in Academic Research</p>\n\n<p><strong>Using this dataset</strong></p>\n\n<p>When Orchset is used for academic research, we would highly appreciate if scientific publications of works partly based on the Orchset dataset quote the above publication.</p>\n\n<p>We are interested in knowing if you find our datasets useful!
