For our paper, A. Berenzweig, D. Ellis, S. Lawrence (2002) Using Voice Segments to Improve Artist Classification of Music Proc. AES-22 Intl. Conf. on Virt., Synth., and Ent. Audio. Espoo, Finland, June 2002. http://www.ee.columbia.edu/~dpwe/pubs/aes02-aclass.pdf we (well, Adam to be specific) hand-labeled a bunch of files for where the vocals appeared. These were the 15-sec samples that were randomly recorded from the radio in 1996 by Eric Scheirer and Malcolm Slaney; there were in total 64 that included vocals. That seems like a reasonable amount for evaluation, although more would be nice. You can read about the data at http://labrosa.ee.columbia.edu/sounds/musp/scheislan.html If you want to download the data, I can send you the link. I just try to keep track of who downloads it. We' ve always made these available (thanks to permission from Malcolm and Eric) but I don't know if anyone else has actually evaluated against them. And I'm sorry if they've been a well-kept secret!

Thanks for your help Geoffroy Peeters Ircam - R&D tel: +33/1/ email: peeters@xxxxxxxx
