The Interpersonal Entrainment in Music Performance Data Collection

Clayton, Martin and Tarsitani, Simone and Jankowsky, Richard and Jure, Luis and Leante, Laura and Polak, Rainer and Poole, Adrian and Rocamora, Martín and Alborno, Paolo and Camurri, Antonio and Eerola, Tuomas and Jacoby, Nori and Jakubowski, Kelly (2021) 'The Interpersonal Entrainment in Music Performance Data Collection.', Empirical Musicology Review, 16 (1). pp. 65-84.


The Interpersonal Entrainment in Music Performance Data Collection (IEMPDC) comprises six related corpora of music research materials: Cuban Son & Salsa (CSS), European String Quartet (ESQ), Malian Jembe (MJ), North Indian Raga (NIR), Tunisian Stambeli (TS), and Uruguayan Candombe (UC). The core data for each corpus comprises media files and computationally extracted event onset timing data. Annotation of metrical structure and code used in the preparation of the collection is also shared. The collection is unprecedented in size and level of detail and represents a significant new resource for empirical and computational research in music. In this article we introduce the main features of the data collection and the methods used in its preparation. Details of technical validation procedures and notes on data visualization are available as Appendices. We also contextualize the collection in relation to developments in Open Science and Open Data, discussing important distinctions between the two related concepts.
