Final Year Project

Automatic Accompaniment Music Generation for Vocal Melodies and Singing Skill Evaluation

A comprehensive Android mobile music application which is capable of generating accompaniment music when a user sings a song. The notes of the vocal melody is extracted using Signal processing and presented to a Hidden Markov Model to generate the accompaniment music. A singing skill evaluation module is also integrated so that to improve the final outcome using pitch interval accuracy and tempo. The ultimate goal of this application is to enable a musically untrained individual to get a taste of music creation.
