|Title||Evaluation of Distance Measures for MPEG-7 Melody Contours|
|Abstract||In Query by Humming (QBH) systems the melody contour is often used as a symbolic description of music. The MelodyContour Description Scheme (DS) defined by MPEG-7 is a standardized representation of melody contours. For melody comparison in a QBH system a distance measure is required.This paper evaluates different distance measures for the MPEG-7 MelodyContour DS.|
The usability of each measure is discussed.
