Instrument-Independent Dastgah Recognition of Iranian Classical Music Using AzarNet.

In this paper, AzarNet, a deep neural network (DNN), is proposed to recognizing seven different Dastgahs of Iranian classical music in Maryam Iranian classical music (MICM) dataset. Over the last years, there has been remarkable interest in employing feature learning and DNNs which lead to decreasing the required engineering effort. DNNs have shown better performance in many classification tasks such as audio signal classification compares to shallow processing architectures. Despite image data, audio data need some preprocessing steps to extract spectra and temporal features. Some transformations like Short-Time Fourier Transform (STFT) have been used in the state of art researches to transform audio signals from time-domain to time-frequency domain to extract both temporal and spectra features. In this research, the STFT output results which are extracted features are given to AzarNet for learning and classification processes. It is worth noting that, the mentioned dataset contains music tracks composed with two instruments (violin and straw). The overall f1 score of AzarNet on test set, for average of all seven classes was 86.21% which is the best result ever reported in Dastgah classification according to our best knowledge.
