Song Search and Retrieval by Tapping

Geoff Peters, Caroline Anthony, Michael Schwartz

We present an interactive, web based system for musical song search and retrieval, using rhythmic tapping as the primary means of query input. Our approach involves encoding the input rhythm as a contour string, and using approximate string matching to determine the most likely match with songs in the database.
