1. Almeida, Hugo Ricardo da Costa. Automatic cymbal classification.

Degree: 2010, Universidade Nova

Dissertação apresentada na Faculdade de Ciências e Tecnologia da Universidade Nova de Lisboa para a obtenção do grau de Mestre em Engenharia Informática

Most of the research on automatic music transcription is focused on the transcription of pitched instruments, like the guitar and the piano. Little attention has been given to unpitched instruments, such as the drum kit, which is a collection of unpitched instruments. Yet, over the last few years this type of instrument started to garner more attention, perhaps due to increasing popularity of the drum kit in the western music. There has been work on automatic music transcription of the drum kit, especially the snare drum, bass drum, and hi-hat. Still, much work has to be done in order to achieve automatic music transcription of all unpitched instruments. An example of a type of unpitched instrument that has very particular acoustic characteristics and that has deserved almost no attention by the research community is the drum kit cymbals. A drum kit contains several cymbals and usually these are treated as a single instrument or are totally disregarded by automatic music classificators of unpitched instruments. We propose to fill this gap and as such, the goal of this dissertation is automatic music classification of drum kit cymbal events, and the identification of which class of cymbals they belong to. As stated, the majority of work developed on this area is mostly done with very different percussive instruments, like the snare drum, bass drum, and hi-hat. On the other hand, cymbals are very similar between them. Their geometry, type of alloys, spectral and sound traits shows us just that. Thus, the great achievement of this work is not only being able to correctly classify the different cymbals, but to be able to identify such similar instruments, which makes this task even harder.

2. Ahl, Johan. Lika förutsättningar för lärande : En studie om trumundervisning på musik- och kulturskola ur ett genusperspektiv.

Degree: Artistic Studies, 2016, Karlstad University

Studiens syfte är att utifrån ett genusperspektiv studera hur trumlektioner genomförs i musik- och kulturskola. Forskningsfrågor är: Vilka förutsättningar för lärande ges killar respektive tjejer i trumundervisning? Hur arbetar trumlärare med det sociala samspelet, val av undervisningsmaterial, kravställningar och förväntningar på sina elever, sett utifrån ett genusperspektiv? För att undersöka detta har tre kvalitativa intervjuer och sex deltagande videoobservationer genomförts. Tidigare studier visar bland annat att musiklärare förväntar sig en feminin och maskulin stil av sina elever, att det är svårt som tjej att positionera sig på ett sätt som utmanar den lokala genusregimen samtidigt som det är svårt att vara traditionellt feminin – måttfull och kontrollerad - när det ska spelas instrument som elbas och trumset. I föreliggande studies resultat visas trumlärarnas syn på trumundervisning men också hur de genomför sin undervisning och hur kill- och tjejelever hanteras i undervisningen. Där framkommer att lärarna i stor utsträckning anpassar undervisningen efter elevernas personligheter och individuella förutsättningar och inte efter könstillhörighet, men att trumlärarna uttrycker vissa fördomar som kan peka på att de förväntar sig att se en feminin och maskulin stil hos sina elever. Diskussion förs om problematiken i att instrument och yrken är genuskodade, vilket kan påverka elevernas förutsättningar för lärande, och om lärares eventuella fördomar samt att vi lärare måste anpassa oss efter eleverna och inte tvärtom.

The purpose of this study is to, from a gender perspectice, explore how the drum kit lessons in three music and culture schools are performed. To investigate this, three qualitative interviews and six participant video observations have been implemented. Previous studies show that music teachers expect a feminine and masculine style of their students, that it is difficult as a girl to position themselves in a way that challenges the local gender regime while it is difficult to be traditionally feminine - moderate and controlled – when playing instruments such as electric bass and drum kit. In the present studies results, drum teachers’ views on drum teaching are shown but also how they conduct their teaching, and how boy- and girl students are handled in teaching. It emerges that teachers largely adapt teaching to students’ personalities and individual circumstances and not to gender, but the drum teachers express certain prejudices which may indicate that they expect to see a feminine and masculine style of their students. There is a discussion about the problems of instruments and professions being gender-coded, which can affect students’ learning conditions, and teacher prejudices and that teachers have to adapt to the students and not vice versa.

3. Almeida, João Manuel Pinheiro de. The drum kit and the studio : a spectral and dynamic analysis of the relevant components.

Degree: 2014, RCAAP

The research emerged from the need to understand how engineers perceive and record drum kits in modern popular music. We performed a preliminary, exploratory analysis of behavioural aspects in drum kit samples. We searched for similarities and differences, hoping to achieve further understanding of the sonic relationship the instrument shares with others, as well as its involvement in music making. Methodologically, this study adopts a pragmatic analysis of audio contents, extraction of values and comparison of results. We used two methods to analyse the data. The first, a generalised approach, was an individual analysis of each sample in the chosen eight classes (composed of common elements in modern drum kits). The second focused on a single sample that resulted from the down-mix of the previous classes’ sample pools. For the analysis, we handpicked several subjective and objective features as well as a series of low-level audio descriptors that hold information regarding the dynamic and frequency contents of the audio samples. We then conducted a series of processes, which included visual analysis of three-dimensional graphics and software-based information computing, to retrieve the analytical data. Results showed that there are some significant similarities among the classes’ audio features. This led to the assumption that the a priori experience of engineers could, in fact, be a collective and subconscious notion, instinctively achieved in a recording session. In fact, with more research concerning this subject, one may even find new a new way to deal with drum kits in a studio context, hastening time-consuming processes and strenuous tasks that are common when doing so.

A investigação científica realizada no ramo do áudio e da música tornou-se abastada e prolífica, exibindo estudos com alto teor informativo para melhor compreensão das diferentes áreas de incidência. Muita da pesquisa desenvolvida foca-se em aspectos pragmáticos: reconhecimento de voz e de padrão, recuperação de informação musical, sistemas de mistura inteligente, entre outros. No entanto, embora estes sejam aspectos formais de elevada importância, tem-se notado uma latente falta de documentação relativa a aspectos mais idílicos e artísticos. O instrumento musical de estudo que escolhemos foi a bateria. Para além de uma vontade pessoal de entender a plenitude das suas características sónicas intrínsecas para aplicações prácticas com resultados tangíveis, é de notar a ausência de discurso e pesquisa científica que por este caminho se tenha aventurado. Não obstante, a bateria tem sido objecto de estudo profundo em contextos analíticos, motivo pelo qual foi também relevante originar a nossa abordagem seminal. Por um lado, as questões físicas de construção e manutenção de baterias, bem como aspectos de índole ambiental e de espaço (salas de gravação) são dos aspectos que mais efeitos produzem na diferença timbríca em múltiplos exemplos de gravações de baterias. No entanto, questões tonais (fundamentais para uma pluralidade de instrumentos) na…
