This paper describes the application of several network analysis techniques to the networks of users in audio clip sharing sites. Two kinds of networks are described: one based on the file downloading activity, and the other based on semantic similarity in the use of free tags to annotate sounds. The properties of these networks as well as their community structure are analyzed using data from Free sound, a very popular audio clip sharing site. Both are characterized as "small worlds". The…

Small world networks and creativity in audio clip sharing
The notion of creativity as an objective for this kind of community is proposed, and how some indicators of creativity can be extracted from user activities in these systems are proposed.
Extending sound sample descriptions through the extraction of community knowledge
A research plan is outlined in the context of and ideas about how audio clip sharing sites could adapt and take advantage of particular user communities to improve the descriptions of their content are proposed.
Freesound 2: An Improved Platform for Sharing Audio Clips is an online collaborative sound database where people from different disciplines share recorded sound clips under Creative Commons licenses. It was started in 2005 and it is being
Characterization of the Freesound online community
This paper proposes some qualitative and quantitative approaches for the characterization of the community of sound practitioners that has emerged in Freesound, focusing on the analysis of organizational structure, shared goals, user interactions and vocabulary sharing.

Using Audio Analysis and Network Structure to Identify Communities in On-Line Social Networks of Artists
Evidence suggesting the Myspace artist network structure is closely related to musical genre is presented and a Semantic Web service for accessing this structure is described.
Virtual Communities for Creating Shared Music Channels
An approach to automatically create virtual communities of users with similar music tastes in a distributed way, so that they can for example be used in peer-to-peer networks.
Cover song networks: analysis and accuracy increase
This work proposes a new point of view: songs are embedded in a complex weighted network, whose links represent similarity (common musical content between songs) and finds a strong modular structure, with well-defined communities and a clustering coefficient higher than expected.
The Social Network of Contemporary Popular Musicians
This paper analyzes two social network datasets of contemporary musicians constructed from, a music and artists' information database, and finds that they differ significantly in some key network features such as the degree and the betweenness distributions.
Network analysis of massively collaborative creation of multimedia contents: case study of hatsune miku videos on nico nico douga
This study examines Hatsune Miku, a version of singing synthesizer application software that has inspired not only song creation but also songwriting, illustration, and video editing, and produces a social network from relationships among videos and creators by analyzing videos' descriptions.
A sample of the Myspace artist network is examined to investigate the relationship between social connectivity and audio-based similarity. Audio data from the Myspace artist pages is analyzed using
Fast unfolding of community hierarchies in large networks
This work decomposes the networks into communities of strongly connected nodes, with the nodes belonging to different communities only sparsely connected, and proposes algorithms to find reasonably “good” solutions of the problem in a reasonably ”fast” way.
An analysis of the social structure of remix culture
Findings from a music sharing and remixing community are presented in an effort to quantify and understand the structural characteristics of commons-based peer production for products of aesthetic/cultural or entertainment value and a normative perspective on the strategies that such communities should employ with respect to the use of 'remixing contests.
Complex networks in recommendation systems
Complex network theory was boosted in 1967 thanks to the experiment of Milgram: since then, the application of this special kind of graphs has given fruitful results in social science problems, from

It is pointed out that weighted networks can in many cases be analyzed using a simple mapping from a weighted network to an unweighted multigraph, allowing us to apply standard techniques for unweighting graphs to weighted ones as well.
