  "abstract": "<p>The MASTrhythm dataset is a collection of 3721 audio files cropped from recordings of conservatory entrance examinations in Turkey (summer 2015 and summer 2016). The entrance examination includes various tasks such as melody reproduction (<a href=\"\">see MASTmelody dataset</a>), recognition of intervals and rhythmic patterns reproduction.</p>\n\n<p>There are two categories for the files: reference recording (rhythmic patterns played by a jury member as the reference) and the recording of the candidate reproducing the pattern (referred as the &quot;performance&quot;).</p>\n\n<p>The candidate performances have been graded by three jury members who are teaching staff members of the conservatory. Grades are binary: pass, fail. This dataset includes only the samples for which all jury members agreed in grading with the same score. Hence, there are basically two categories for the performance files: i) performances graded as &#39;fail&#39; by all the jury members , ii) performances graded as &#39;pass&#39; by all the jury members.</p>\n\n<p>For each candidate performance recording, the reference recording for that session is also available.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Naming convention:</strong></p>\n\n<p>The dataset is composed of audio files. All other information is coded in the file names: &#39;ref&#39;: reference recording, &#39;per&#39;: performance recording, &#39;fail&#39;: performance graded as &#39;fail&#39;, &#39;pass&#39;: performance graded as &#39;pass&#39;</p>\n\n<p>There exists 40 distinct rhythmic patterns. The ID for the melody makes up the first part of the file name. Examples:</p>\n\n<p>&#39;51_rhy1_per101559_fail.m4a&#39;: Rhythmic pattern ID: &#39;51_rhy1&#39;, this is a candidate performance recording (candidate ID: 101559) graded as fail</p>\n\n<p>&#39;55_rhy2_ref280758.m4a&#39;: Rhythmic pattern ID: &#39;55_rhy2&#39;, this is a reference recording (performed by a jury member) for candidate with ID: 280758.</p>\n\n<p><strong>Acknowledgement:</strong></p>\n\n<p>This dataset has been curated within the TUBITAK (The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey) funded research project 1001-215K017 targeting development of automatic assessment tools for music performances.</p>",
