This is the first write-up in a series of articles on some problems I plan to solve with code. I am starting off with something very close to me, Carnatic Music. I’ve tried to dabble in raga recognition before. The one we are going to see is a bit more ambitious, maybe more useful to people. I don’t know suddha rishabham from chatusruthi rishabham, but I can try, can’t I ?!
There must be an effort to digitize all known Carnatic songs with notations / variations etc. Something like a full fledged search engine for that. For example, I should be able to search for a sequence of swaras and be able to get matching krithis or parts of them.— Sudharsan (@parakalakavi) May 28, 2022
I was hooked with "saamagaana vinodini gunadaama shyaamakrishNanutE", I would love to know where else would I get a similar experience 'anubhavam'.— Sudharsan (@parakalakavi) May 28, 2022
How do I want to solve this ?
- Our data source has to be shivkumar.org. It is a treasure trove for people interested in this music. We’ll scrape all the notations(the swaras) for all available songs and index it.
