Classification and Comparison of Different Folk Music Traditions Using Self Learning Algorithms
(Proceedings pages 487–490)
The results of a comparative analysis of 25 folk song databases are
summarized in this paper. The method of the analysis was based on
self organizing mapping and multidimensional scaling algorithms.
The results show a clear system of deterministic contacts of the
cultures. De concrete common musical forms of different cultures
can also be studied.
