Melodies from Meertens Tune Collections and Essen Folksong Collection as sequences of features.

Project description


The Meertens Tune Collections include various data sets with melodic data. The melodies are provided in Humdrum **kern encoding and as MIDI sequences. In many cases, a representation of the melodies as sequences of feature values is needed rather than encoded scores.

MTCFeatures is a Python module that provides melodic data sets containing such feature sequences, and functionality for feature and object filtering and feature extraction.

The following data sets are included:

  • MTC-ANN-2.0.1 - A small set of 360 richly annotated melodies from Dutch sources.
  • MTC-FS-INST-2.0 - A large set of c. 18 thousand melodies from Dutch sources.
  • ESSEN Folksong Collection - A set of over 8 thousand folk song melodies mainly from Germany.

Further documentation is available at, or in the ./docs directory.
