Joint Seminar: Music Timeseries Analysis

Music is undeniably one of the highlights of human culture ever since antiquity. A music performance is a complex phenomenon, and not only because playing music is a difficult task. It is because of the vast amount of complicated processes involved: rhythm, harmony, intensity, improvisation, interaction between musicians, and many more. Yet, even with all this complexity, it turns out that timeseries of music recordings are following universal mathematical properties across different performers and music styles. In this talk I will present the universality that governs music timeseries, and then discuss its impact on the listening experience. The talk will conclude with an outlook on ongoing work on the synchronization between musicians.
