Audio Resynthesis on the Dancefloor: A Music Structural Approach
This technical report improves and extends existing methods in the research area of audio resynthesis and retargeting and extends its usage scopes. The existing approach analyzes a musical piece for possible cut points that allow the resynthesis of a novel soundtrack by lining up the source segments according to specified rules. For the improvement of matching harmonic and rhythmic structures during cut points search, beat tracking is used as core component of this work. Segment rearrangement is improved by employing faster and better suited algorithms.
