The paper describes methods for automatically locating points of significant change in music or audio, by analyzing local self-similarity. This method can find individual note boundaries or even natural segment boundaries such as verse/chorus or speech/music transitions, even in the absence of cues such as silence. This approach uses the signal to model itself, and thus does not rely on particular acoustic cues nor requires training. We present a wide variety of applications, including indexing, segmenting, and beat tracking of music and audio. The method works well on a wide variety of audio sources
