Abstract

In this paper some of the prevailing classifications of Indian songs are quantified by measuring their fractal dimension. Samples were collected from three categories: Classical, Semiclassical, and Light. After appropriate processing, the samples were converted into time series datasets and their fractal dimension was computed. Based on these results, an online method for classification is offered.
