comment Correct terminology for this genre and type of performance
For what it's worth, the band you've referenced might best be described as "experimental live electronica", and it's entirely possible that there aren't any other bands doing what they're doing.

Your question is about a performance of music, but it is not about the art and craft of music performance. Music Fans is a site proposal, meaning once it gains enough followers on Area 51 it will be turned into a full site.

Hi Raj, welcome to Music.SE. Our site is about the practice of music, and this question is of the "Music Appreciation" variety, which is defined as off-topic here. There is a proposal on Area 51 gaining traction now that would be the proper place for this kind of question.

@MeaningfulUsername I think that's debatable... not that the equipment becomes quickly obsolete, but that the companies are constantly trying to one-up each other as they are in any industry. Regardless, however, this question is a dupe of the one the Bob linked.

The tonic, or "tonal center" of a melody is very different from the literal "center frequency". Given a C major scale played in one octave, by that logic the tonic would be F#!

Where did you learn that the average frequency of a set of melody notes is the tonic?

This is true, but you claim to have an algorithmic way to do the key extrapolation. Please explain how this is done.

@caseyr547 If I start with a recording of a melody, I can transcribe it. If I want to figure out what the tonic is, what do I do next?

@caseyr547 Your additional paragraph just explained how you transcribed the music. I still do not understand why you had to transpose it up a whole step in the case of the first example, and how you arrived at your conclusion.

Please show your work. Given the existing downvotes, the burden of proof is on you to make this clear and understandable. Ideally this answer should contain all of: A) An audio example. B) The transcribed notation of that audio example. C) The dataset and algorithm, step by step.

@Codeswitcher Hopefully he comes back, but I believe the "melody" lines imply a tonic, but may only rarely pass through whatever note that is (albeit an octave or two above the drone). It would be great if some examples could be provided.

comment How much do piano tuning lessons usually cost?
Also to add to the point about self-publicity: Bradd is correct in that your profile/bio should be the extent of any "advertising" you do, but beyond that, just using the site to its fullest on your topic of expertise will literally and figuratively gain you reputation. You can also ask and answer your own question to contribute to the community knowledge base, and gain reputation just like you would on any other post if it's something the rest of us find compelling!

comment How much do piano tuning lessons usually cost?
Thanks for the edit, but this isn't substantively different. My suggestion for this question would be more along the lines of "As a freelancer, what factors should I consider when setting rates for online/Skype lessons relative to my regular rates for in-person instruction?" -- and then include some of the background information you had initially in the question body. That way you're not asking "what would you pay?" (which is off-topic), but "how should I go about doing this?" which speaks directly to the music business problem you are facing.
