Figures from this paper

Freesound technical demo
TLDR
This demo wants to introduce Freesound to the multimedia community and show its potential as a research resource.
Representing Music as Work in Progress
TLDR
An approach to music representation that supports collaborative composition given current practices based on digital audio is discussed, and the use of XML for storing production rules, music structure, and references to audio files is analyzed.
Composing with All Sound Using the FreeSound and Wordnik APIs
  • E. Merz
  • Computer Science
    MUME@AIIDE
  • 2013
TLDR
Techniques for organizing and collaging sounds from the user-contributed database at freesound.org are demonstrated and three pieces generated from sound graphs using cellular automata, and swarm intelligence are elaborate on.
Live Repurposing of Sounds: MIR Explorations with Personal and Crowdsourced Databases
TLDR
A live coding system built on SuperCollider enabling the use of audio content from online Creative Commons (CC) sound databases such as Freesound or personal sound databases and its potential in facilitating tailorability of the tool to their own creative workflows is demonstrated.
Graph grammar representation for collaborative sample-based music creation
TLDR
An experimental prototype that implements the use of the graph grammar formalism to organize collective work on musical compositions stored as graphs of samples is described, and it is shown how this representation allows tracking and analyzing the music creation process.
Music Information Retrieval in Live Coding: A Theoretical Framework
TLDR
It is found that it is still a technical challenge to use high-level features in real time, yet using rhythmic and tonal properties (midlevel features) in combination with text-based information (e.g., tags) helps to achieve a closer perceptual level centered on pitch and rhythm when using MIR in live coding.
A framework for computer-assisted sound design systems supported by modelling affective and perceptual properties of soundscape
TLDR
A system called Audio Metaphor is outlined that is built upon the notion that sound design for soundscape compositions is emotionally informed and is revealed to be human-competitive regarding semantic and emotion-based indicators.
Tabletop tangible interfaces for music performance : design and evaluation
TLDR
The findings suggest that musical tabletops can support peer learning during multiple sessions; fluid between-group social interaction in public settings; and a democratic and ecological approach to music performance.
Interactive audiovisual objects
TLDR
The results reaffirm that there is a space in new media art for figuration, echoing Manovich’s observations regarding the potential for representational media using software art, instead of what he considers to be a prevalent abstract “soft modernism” approach.
DESIGN AND EVALUATION OF A VISUALIZATION INTERFACE FOR QUERYING LARGE UNSTRUCTURED SOUND DATABASES
TLDR
The aim of this thesis is the design of a visualization interface that let users graphically define queries for the Freesound Project database and retrieve suitable results for a musical context.

Motivations and Methodologies for Automation of the Compositional Process
TLDR
It is argued that research in the four domains will continueto stagnate unless the motivations and aims of research projects are clearly stated and appropriate methodologies are adopted for developing and evaluating systems that compose music.
Collaborative Creation of Communal Hierarchical Taxonomies in Social Tagging Systems
TLDR
A simple but remarkably effective algorithm for converting a large corpus of tags annotating objects in a tagging system into a navigable hierarchical taxonomy of tags is discovered.
Traité des objets musicaux
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of music criticism in the post-modern period from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which Pierre Schaeffer died.
