This extended abstract details a submission to the Music Information Retrieval Evaluation eXchange in the Query by Singing/Humming task. The problem of query by singing consists of building a machine capable of simulating the cognitive process of identifying a musical piece from a few sung notes of its melody. In this work, the algorithms of pitch tracking, onset detection and melody matching used in the system Tararira [1] are briefly described. Much effort has been put on automatic transcription of singing voice as it is a key factor in the overall performance. A novel way of combining note by note matching with the approach based on pitch time series matching is introduced.
