We introduce a dataset for facilitating audio-visual analysis of musical performances. The dataset comprises a number of simple multi-instrument musical pieces assembled from coordinated but separately recorded performances of individual tracks. For each piece, we provide the musical score in MIDI format, the high-quality individual instrument audio recordings and the videos of the assembled pieces. We anticipate that the dataset will be useful for multi-modal information retrieval techniques such as music source separation, transcription, performance analysis and also serve as ground-truth for evaluating performances.
The dataset is organized as 44 folders for the 44 pieces. For each piece folder we have the following files:
The pitch/note annotations of all the tracks can be visualized here:
