Example 3. “ABC,” showing the melody and the pitch contour of every mediant note. Each pitch contour is labeled with the syllable (underlined), the onset time in seconds, and the mean pitch (see text for explanation). Blue lines indicate the tonic pitch-class, A. Five possible blue notes are labeled “BN?” above the score. The score is shown in six sections; click on a link below to see a section. Click on the score to enlarge it. The audio file contains the entire song: The original isolated vocal is on one stereo track, and a synthesized pitch contour generated from the output of the pitch-tracking algorithm on the other track.
