  <dc:description>This is the 4th version of the dataset. The folder structure has been changed since the 2nd version, where the Laosheng folder has been moved directly into wav or textgrid folder.

Description:

This dataset is a collection of boundary annotations of a cappella singing performed by Beijing Opera (Jingju, 京剧) professional and amateur singers. 


	wav.zip: audio files in .wav format, mono or stereo.
	wav_mono.zip: audio files in .wav format, mono
	pycode.zip: util code for parsing the .textgrid annotation
	catalogue*.csv: recording metadata, source separation recordings are not included.
	textgrid.zip: phrase, syllable and phoneme annotation in Praat .textgrid format
	annotation_txt.zip: phrase, syllable and phoneme time boundaries (second) and labels in .txt format
	
		*phrase_char: phrase-level time boundaries, labeled in Mandarin characters
		*phrase: phrase-level time boundaries, labeled in Mandarin pinyin
		*syllable: syllable-level time boundaries, labeled in Mandarin pinyin
		*phoneme: phoneme-level time boundaries, labeled in X-SAMPA
	
	


The boundaries (onset and offset) have been annotated in both Praat TextGrid (textgrid.zip) and .txt (annotation_txt.zip) format hierarchically:


	phrase (line),
	syllable,
	phoneme


Singing units in pinyin and X-SAMPA have been annotated to a jingju a cappella singing audio dataset.

The corresponding audio files are the a cappella singing arias recordings, which are stereo or mono, sampled at 44.1 kHz, and stored as .wav files. The .wav files are recorded by two institutes: those file names ending with ‘qm’ are recorded by C4DM, Queen Mary University of London; others file names ending with ‘upf’ or ‘lon’ are recorded by MTG-UPF. Additionally, another collection of 15 clean singing recordings is included in this dataset. They are extracted from the commercial recordings which originally contains karaoke accompaniment and mixed versions.
