Erratum: We have recently discovered a few errors in the tonic annotations listed in atli2015tonic_fma. The annotations are currently being revised.

The tonic test datasets for classical Ottoman-Turkish makam music

Introduction

This is a pre-release, in which all the previous tonic datasets are merged into a single one with homogenous and explanatory format. Afterwards, we will start automatically and/or manually verifying the annotations.

This repository contains datasets of annotated tonic frequencies of the audio recordings of Ottoman-Turkish makam music. The annotations are compiled from several research papers published under the CompMusic project. For more information about the original datasets, please refer to the relevant paper.

Each annotated recording is uniquely identified with a MusicBrainz MBID. The tonic symbol is also for each recording given in the format [letter][octave][accidental][comma], e.g. B4b1 (according to AEU theory).

Each recording is annotated by at least expert musician or musicologists. The annotations are stored as a list with each annotation including the annotated frequency, source dataset, relevant publication, additional observations written by the annotator and whether the octave of the annotated value is considered (for example, the octave is ambiguous in orchestral instrumental recordings).

Annotation structure

The data is stored as JSON file and organized as a dictionary of recordings. An example recording is displayed below:

Most of the recordings in this dataset cannot be shared due to copyright. However relevant features are already computed and they can be downloaded from the Dunya-makam after registration. Please refer to the API documentation (http://dunya.compmusic.upf.edu/docs/makam.html) to how to access the data.
