Classifying Indian Classical Music(Carnatic) and Western Classical Music

Started Mar. 14, 2022

Abstract or project description

Indian classical music is the music of the Indian subcontinent and is one of the oldest kinds of music. Although Indian music has progressed significantly, the fundamental components appear to remain the same as they were two thousand years ago. The raga is at the center of Indian classical music, and it is the language of the spirit. Novel Indian music, on the other hand, has been heavily impacted by Western music notation, which is based on equal mean tones, temperament scales, and the universal priority of harmony. Indian and Western music differs not just in terms of culture, but also in terms of fundamental structures, scales, and tuning. New musical innovations are burgeoning in the current decade with an incredible number of fusions of Western Classical music and Indian Classical music. While fusions are a way of celebrating two different art forms, is the originality of the classical forms fading away? This project aims at studying the classification of Indian Classical Music and Western Classical music. A simple feedforward neural network was created to classify the audio data. The audio classification is not limited to the style of music. The model also classifies the audios according to the instruments and the different ensembles at play. A testing accuracy of 75.00 percent and a training accuracy of 97.9 percent was achieved through the model. This project is an attempt to encourage musical fusions and to help create awareness among the community about the ancient and widely practiced art of Carnatic Music.
