"Applications of Discrete Fourier Analysis to Musical Chords Recognition. (Senior Project Presentation)"








Abstract: The goal of this project is to explain the use of some
mathematical tools to the problem of recognition of the harmonic structure of a musical piece electronically recorded. First, the mathematical tools refer to the Discrete Fourier Transform, the Fast Fourier Transform algorithm, and the Hidden Markov Models are explained. After a short review of the musical theory background referring to the harmonic structure of a musical piece and a review of some signal processing concepts as spectrogram and chromagram, an algorithm and a MATLAB code based on all these ingredients is presented.
