Extended Chordal Diatonic Pitch Class Histogram


Extended Chordal Diatonic Pitch Class is calculated in reference to the underlying chord.

Pitch Class Histogram


MIDI Pitch Histogram


Semitone Interval Histogram


Refined Contour Histogram


Also known as “fuzzy intervals” or interval classification. See here for definition of classes

Metrical Circle Map (N=48) Histogram


Metrical circle maps divides the bar duration into equal sized bins (48 in this case) and maps metrical positions to the corresponding bin. (Labels normalized to 4/4 measure).

Duration Class (Abs. and Rel.) Histogram


Relative duration classes are based on the duration of the beat. Absolute duration classes are based on 120 bpm. See here for a definition of classes.

Midlevel Analysis Main Types Histogram


Midlevel analysis is a qualitative annotation system of playing ideas, with nine different main categories, as defined in our paper
