Research Project Title:

Automatic Music Transcription with Multiple Instruments

abstract:The goal of my SuperUROP is to be able to transcribe musical performances with multiple instruments, automatically with computers. In general, the task of music transcription is about listening to a piece of music, and writing down all of its musical elements using some sort of notation. The current state of the art models use deep learning to transcribe live piano performances to sheet music. I am working towards extending this research to be able to work with any combination of instruments, instead of just piano.

"I'm concentrating in music and I'm pretty involved in the dance community at MIT. So I'm especially excited about this SuperUROP because I have the opportunity to help computers develop an understanding of the complex layers that underlie the overall sound of a song -- the same way humans compose music in parts, or dance to different musical elements!"
