    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;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 (&lt;a href=""&gt;see MASTmelody dataset&lt;/a&gt;), recognition of intervals and rhythmic patterns reproduction.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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 &amp;quot;performance&amp;quot;).&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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 &amp;#39;fail&amp;#39; by all the jury members , ii) performances graded as &amp;#39;pass&amp;#39; by all the jury members.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;For each candidate performance recording, the reference recording for that session is also available.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Naming convention:&lt;/strong&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The dataset is composed of audio files. All other information is coded in the file names: &amp;#39;ref&amp;#39;: reference recording, &amp;#39;per&amp;#39;: performance recording, &amp;#39;fail&amp;#39;: performance graded as &amp;#39;fail&amp;#39;, &amp;#39;pass&amp;#39;: performance graded as &amp;#39;pass&amp;#39;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;There exists 40 distinct rhythmic patterns. The ID for the melody makes up the first part of the file name. Examples:&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;#39;51_rhy1_per101559_fail.m4a&amp;#39;: Rhythmic pattern ID: &amp;#39;51_rhy1&amp;#39;, this is a candidate performance recording (candidate ID: 101559) graded as fail&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;&amp;#39;55_rhy2_ref280758.m4a&amp;#39;: Rhythmic pattern ID: &amp;#39;55_rhy2&amp;#39;, this is a reference recording (performed by a jury member) for candidate with ID: 280758.&lt;/p&gt;


&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
